Has anyone else noticed the addition of AIS (Automatic
Identification System) data on aprs.fi?  For those who
don't know what AIS is, it's a 9600 baud tracking
system for tracking commercial ships.  The protocol is
patented, but can be decoded using ShipPlotter

Looks like they aprs.fi is looking for more costal
stations to feed the AIS data to the server.  Pretty
