Since Heikki Hannikainen is the owner and creator of APRS.FI, I think he would know.

As has been made clear recently (to me if no one else) just because
you see it on APRS.fi or another internet service, doesn't mean it's
"on APRS".  AIS is there, too, but those ships aren't "on APRS".

I look at APRS.fi all the time since getting re-interested in APRS but
I have yet to see a single ship ID in EM15 ...
