Connecting to a VHF Radio that is DSC Capable

Thought I'd share something people might not have thought of; most modern day VHF radios accept NMEA data from a GPS or chart-plotter. They use that data to display location but also to transmit it in an emergency via DSC. You can wire the NMEA out from your FloatHUB right into your DSC-capable VHF, and it will pick a location fix.

There's more info about DSC and VHF here:
