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.

  • 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.

Figuring Out How Microplastics Move From Mussels To Fish

Microscopic beads and fabrics float in our waterways, get ingested by fish and other creatures, and impact the environment in lots of negative ways. But despite that knowledge, there is little we know about how these microplastics first enter aquatic food webs. In a pilot study, researchers at the University of Notre Dame are studying the dynamics of just how microscopic plastics are first transferred from filter feeders to fish. Their investigation is using asian clams and sculpins to pinpoint the interactions underway. The researchers originally wanted to use round gobies, a prolific invasive fish in Lake Erie.

Imaging Foraminifera Shell Formation Clarifies Sediment Samples

In sediment samples taken throughout the world’s oceans, researchers key on shell fragments from single-celled organisms to learn more about the history of an area’s chemistry. But surprisingly little is known about how these organisms form their shells in the first place. In a bid to alleviate some uncertainty, scientists at the University of Washington have imaged some of the actions that take place. As a starting point, the researchers have zeroed in specifically on the time period during which single-celled organisms first start to form their shells. The researchers caught juvenile foraminifera by diving in deep water off Southern California. They then raised them in the lab, using tiny pipettes to feed them brine shrimp during their weeklong lives.

ROV Yogi Gets Underway In Yellowstone Lake

Earlier this year, we covered a work in progress to build a new remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for Yellowstone Lake . It was just an idea back then, but the exploratory craft has since become a reality thanks to some determined researchers and a Kickstarter campaign that reached a goal of $100,000 in funding. Full cost for building the vessel was around $500,000, but crowdfunding a portion of it allowed officials at the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration (GFOE), a nonprofit engineering group, to spur public interest. In a similar vein, they named the completed ROV “Yogi” in honor of the famous fictional comic book character devised by Hanna-Barbera who gets into trouble at Yellowstone National Park.
