Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    We at Y-tronic are currently finalizing our Yacht-AIS Software for use with Class B Transponders. The software will, additional to the capability of displaying AIS data including calculation of CPA and tCPA, be able to input ship static and voyage-related data (ships name, callsign, ship’s dimension and type of ship and cargo) into the Transponder. Additionally it will enable the user to exchange short text messages with other stations.
