MarineTraffic constantly works toward further improving its coverage by expanding its network of AIS-Receiving Stations. Thus, in many cases, we are able to provide our contributors with free AIS receivers.
In case you are interested in participating, you can apply for a free AIS receiver. All applications are carefully evaluated.
The applications such as the following are most likely to be accepted:
- The proposed location is not already covered by other MarineTraffic stations
- The proposed location is of special interest (busy ports, high-traffic sea routes, high altitude)
- The applicant has some experience in dealing with similar technology or, in general, with radio equipment
Through all of these years of expanding our network and running a free AIS receiver campaign, there has been a variety of AIS-receiving devices that were offered to our contributors. In chronological order (newest first):
