    Hmm....in pirate infested waters it would be wise to turn your ais into stealth mode and remain invisable

    I say that the securty provider...trend...is trying to frighten people into using thier product.

    When i use ais as a collision avoidance tool it is backed up by radar. Erroneous ais signals frequently appear due to faulty equipment and radio propagation irregularities. It not uncommon for ais signals to show ships movements 90 degrees to thier true course or for ais targets to jump one of two miles in the blink of an eye.
    The radar tells me that these signals are erroneous.
