Project Objective: Develop an open source AIS Alarm that alerts sailors that a new marine vessel with AIS is within range


The faceplates came back today and here is a photograph:

dAISy Alarm Faceplate

If I make another order there are a few tweaks I will make but overall I am happy with it.  I might make the holes slightly smaller.  I hit the edge of the PCB with sandpaper where the tabs were and then a sharpie to make it blacker but otherwise it is as received.


Time to finish off the firmware.
