Hello :)

No, no progress yet on AIS. Once VRS can identify and deal with non-ICAO aircraft codes I'll be able to add things like support for AIS, but that's still some way off.

In the meantime, if anyone's interested, I've written a quick "proof-of-concept" VB program that:
1. Accepts AIS input on user-defined server address/port. Acts as a client.
2. Outputs any AIS type 9 message as a Basestation MSG3 type message on a user-defined localhost port.
3. It sets the ICAO hex code to the last 6 digits of the MMSI.

No warranty, no support. I wrote it for my own use, but happy to share if it helps. Download from http://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8PduD ... FJHS0ljR00 and unzip to anywhere.

Make sure that both the AIS server and VRS are up and running on the ports you specify before pressing START. It's very unforgiving for failed connections!!

This is very nice, I wish this can be expanded for all AIS Messages so I can have both ships and plane on one system :D

A lot harder to do, as that would involve decoding over 20 different AIS message formats, so not something I would consider doing.
