IAP-205-RW vs IAP-205-US

Hi All,


I've got 2x IAP-205-RW installed aboard a ship.

We are doing cruises in both US and Europe.


Want to buy and install more IAPs.


In US IAP-205-US (restricted) is cheaper than RW version.


I found that on US ones ch. 13,14 will be missing.


What other differencies between them?

Can I use US version with RW within the same network or not?

I don't believe so, no, you should stick with ROW APs if your vessel is mostly either in international waters or outside of the US.

They are tied to unique regulatory requirements.


US can only be used in the US and can not be a part of a cluster with RW IAPs.
