I liked it. Plug and chug. I am waaay too busy working on OTHER items that need my REAL attention. I do not need to be playing with configurations. Milltech Marine did it for me and sent me a unit ready to go, out of the box. Plug and chug. Fast install, no brain time required.

Paired this with my AMEC B600 and my VHF antenna. VSWR of the VHF radio stayed VERY low. I was reluctant to use a splitter, but am very happy I gave it a try! Works well. Milltech was very helpful, and explained to me how my previous AIS antenna mounted on dinghy davits was being interfered with by my bimini frame. AIS reception is now excellent with the masthead VHF antenna.

A buddy gave me a spare AIS unit that I thought was a receiver, but turned out to be a transponder. Fortunately, I mentioned what I'd be connecting the splitter to when placing the order, and Milltech got me all squared away with this unit. Great service, fast shipping, and painless install.
