Antenna Splitter with Gain, Not Loss!

Are you looking to improve the performance of your AIS receiver or transponder? The Vesper Marine SP160 is an AIS/VHF/FM antenna splitter that boosts performance rather than decreasing it like many other splitters on the market.

This unique antenna splitter is designed to not only improve the performance of the Vesper Marine AIS transponders such as the Watchmate XB-600 and Watchmate XB-800, but also the performance of other manufacturers AIS receivers and transponders.

The SP160 is an excellent solution when it is difficult to install an additional antenna or if you would simply rather share an existing VHF antenna.

With its 4 unique and convenient status LED’s (power, VHF transmit, AIS transmit and antenna quality) you can easily view important stats at a glance. On-screen VHF-in-use indicators display when paired with the Watchmate 850 and Watchmate Vision AIS transponders.

The SPF160 includes two (2) 2m (6.5ft) long patch cables to be used between the splitter and AIS/VHF radio along with a 2m (6.5ft) power cable.

Vesper has packaged the SP160 with everything required for most installs. If you require a longer cable, Vesper recommends high quality marine grade 50ohm cable with standard PL259 plugs to be used between the SPF160 splitter and AIS transponder or VHF radio, additional cabling sold separately.
