What others say about AIS Antenna PA162-10-5AV:
I got the PA162-10-5AV marine tracking yagis up yesterday.
I’ve received out to 553 km distance during the night to King Island Lighthouse. Thats pretty good I think.
There has been some further development since last email.
Have now been able to hear out to 1073 km on the marine tracking array. Keeping in mind that marine tracking transmitters are only 12 watts FM.
Have attached some other information.
Thank you for sending the 70cm yagis. More work ahead for me.
