    I have asked VHF manufacturers to add NMEA support allowing me to select on an AIS target then press a “Call” button in my nav software. So I don’t have to manually enter the MMSI. Does anyone know of a VHF that supports this?

    From some of my conversations they (engineers) certainty weren’t at the show. When I asked ICOM if they planned to add a wireless mike anytime soon the clown in the booth said “they cause too much interference because you are blasting about on your boat at 25W”.

    The “clown” in the booth was a sales person. They don’t let the engineers work the booth for the very reason that everyone and their brother will give them a product suggestion. The trick is to get invited to the focus group meeting they hold there every year.
