That is 99% of the reason I wanted the combined unit. I wanted to use the 
masthead antenna for both.

Hi, Mike — no, I highly doubt there will be any kind of upgrade path to allow 
the GX2200 to transmit.  That takes a bunch more electronics, and also a lot of 
FCC certification.  If you look at the new VHF/AIS transceiver, it’s actually 
got TWO antenna connections on the back; one for VHF and one for AIS.  That 
would be tough to add to the GX2200…   :^)

Thanks Fred

We currently have the GX2200 which has AIS receive only.  Is there any 
indication that this can be modified to transmit AIS information as well?

We would very much like the ships to know where we are
