Is that a Standard Horizon GX-1500S radio? If so, have your connected it with your electronic chart plotter so that you can send and receive Digital Selective Calling position polls using the Class-D DSC features of the Stnadard Horizon GX1500S radio?

Jim,

Yes it is. I am planning on installing a Garmin 540S chartplotter/Fishfinder as soon as my piggy bank has enough change!

I have been told that I can only receive position data on this chartplotter in log format and not visual location on the chartplotter screen. In order to have this feature I would either have to by an AIS receiver or a Standard Horizon chartplotter/fishfinder combo. The only unit that SH currently makes is much to large for a CC Montauk.

Andrew
