The vhf option is receive-only, meaning you see ais targets around you but they don't see you. The Vesper is a class b AIS devise that transmits your position as well as receives and displays ais targets around you.
Hi Ken,

I have a Vesper 6000, connected to laptop w Coastal Explorer by USB. Very nice setup. I see other AIS vessels, their speed, heading, and name, graphically on the CE chart. They see me too.
