Ais Dispatcher not recognice channel 1/2
« on: 05 June, 2015, 09:15:48 pm »

My AIS Receiver reports channel 1/2 instead of channel A/B

AIS dispather reports this as CRC error and doesn't forward data

is it possible to update AIS Dispatcher to recognice channel 1/2
Field 5 (B in this example) is a radio channel code. AIS uses the high side of the duplex from two VHF radio channels: AIS Channel A is 161.975Mhz (87B); AIS Channel B is 162.025Mhz (88B). In the wild, channel codes 1 and 2 may also be encountered; the standards do not prescribe an interpretation of these but it’s obvious enough..
