The Glomex RA201 splitter allows the use of just one VHF antenna to simultaneously receive VHF, AM/FM and AIS radio signals; without sacrificing performance on the VHF radio transceiver. This compact and economical splitter is compatible with all our AIS receivers.
The unit comes with a coaxial input from the VHF antenna and three outputs for VHF radio, AM/FM radio and AIS receiver. It requires only a 12Vdc power source with a maximum of just 25 mA power consumption.
Thanks to an electronic circuit specifically developed by Glomex and the presence of a built-in preamplifier, the RA201 splitter is able to offer high performance in all three applications, ensuring effective transmission and reception for VHF.
The splitter’s maximum input power for VHF is 100 watts, twice as much as most devices on the market.

Connect the antenna cable with a PL-259 connector to the splitter RA201 S0-239 jack
Connect the marine VHF radio to RA201 using the marine “VHF radio” cable of RA201
Connect the AM/FM radio receiver to RA201 using the “AM/FM radio” cable of RA201
Connect the AIS receive only to RA201 using the “AIS receiver” cable of RA201
Connect the splitter’s power supply (can be hooked to boats’ accessory panel)
Make sure that power supply polarities are not reversed: red to positive (+) and black to negative (-)
Do not use without first connecting the VHF antenna
Do not reverse the connections
ONLY FOR “RECEIVER ONLY” AIS DEVICES! NOT SUITABLE FOR AIS TRANSPONDER DEVICES!
