At the moment there are no plans for a software only option.

Hello Everyone,

I ordered my ShipTrax unit eight days ago from Waters & Stanton in the UK and they told me it would be shipped via Royal Mail and I should have it in 4 days.

Should I be concerned that it hasn't arrived here in Maryland USA?

I am planning to share my data from the Port of Baltimore and the surrounding waterways.
I will be using a DPD AIS half wave antenna at 33 feet with low loss LM400 Coax.

I am currently using Shipplotter with a ACR 2 channel USB receiver with a discone antenna at 25 feet and can receive ships out to 25 to 30 miles from me. I have also tried marine antennas and found the discone out performs them.

dorsetderek,

ShipTrax is selling well and we are getting good comments from customers.

larry.putman,

As informed via email but just to keep the forum up to date, you purchased through a dealer and not us so you will need to contact them on delivery queries.

Larry,
I don't which type of delivery they are using but when I've ordered items from the U.S to be delivered to me in the UK it normally takes about 10 days. That's using USPS & Royal Mail, including clearing Customs. ;-)

You should have got a tracking number, if not then email W&S and ask if they can provide one for you.

Hi, Can anyone who has Shiptrax tell me what the shiptrax network is like?, Will the network coverage get bigger as units are being sold?
Thank you

Hi John,

The network uses AISHUB's network as well so its already quite busy, as more Shiptrax units are sold the coverage will get even better.

The link below shows a map of the amount of ships in specfic areas.

Hello to All,

I have received my ShipTrax software/hardware!
Thanks to AirNav for thier assistance!

I am very impressed with the software and hardware!
I am also impressed to see how big the network of users is!

I am located in Pasadena Maryland and I am now adding shipping from the Port of Baltimore and beyond.
I will take a polar plot of my discone antenna for a couple of days and then switch to my DPD antenna to compare the range and patterns. I will report back to the group with the info.

The receiver sensitivity is definitely better on the ShipTrax receiver then my SR-162!
I find that I can copy ships 5 miles farther away so AirNav has a winner!

I have to agree.  During beta testing I was seeing around 40-50% more AIS messages being received, and better range than other receivers.  There are some great hardware designers working for Airnav.
