WL70R System with iKConnect

The system uses the well proven, WL70 1.25m wifi antenna and ships complete with a compact, DC powered wireless router called iKConnect. This creates a local wifi network on board the boat allowing mobile devices like phones, tablets and laptops to share the connectivity of the long range wifi antenna - effectively allowing multiple devices and users to share the internet connection.

The WL70 features a hi power modem integrated into the rugged 15dBm antenna. It's self powered from a USB connection - either direct to a PC/MAC or via the iKConnect router in the new WL70R bundle making installation really easy.

Features:
  • Rugged 1.25m 15dBm antenna with industry standard 1" mount compatability
  • Super compact iKConnect router with direct 10-18V DC power connection
  • Simple to use web interface for setting up and connecting to hotspots
  • Offers typically 15-20x normal wifi connection range and maximizes speed
  • iKConnect creates an 802.11n wireless network onboard with full WEP/WPA/WPA2 encrypted password protection
  • Detachable 5dBi antenna on iKConnect router to footprint boats up to 25m
  • LAN and WAN connections for network expansion and other applications - compatible with iKommunicate too
  • Also compatible with FUSION marine audio network for FUSION app audio control
  • 3G/4G USB modem support


More and more boaters want access to the internet afloat. Marinas and ports as well as a large number of cafes, hotels, restaurants and service providers offer wifi connectivity but you may just miss that vital connection if you_re moored or anchored away from the dock _ especially if you_re below decks about to enjoy a movie or catch up on email. The WL70 can offer reliable and fast connections up to about + mile/1km depending upon conditions. For ranges up to 5-7NM, the more powerful WL510 is available.

Targeting Spawning Bass: Are They Going to Bite?

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
