The SR161 is an entry-level, low-cost, single-channel scanning receiver. It is designed for recreational vessels using a PC computer with AIS-capable navigation software or RS232 compatible chartplotters, such as the Standard Horizon CP180 and CP300.
For a very simple, low-cost and easy-to-set-up PC-based AIS system, use the SR161, with the Sabrent USB to Serial Adapter.
New in original box - $150.00
