I like the suggestion to split port 2 into a listener and a talker. I hadn't thought of doing that. Thank you.

As for sharing data, does DSC and AIS data show up on both of your plotters or only the one you have connected to these devices?

I often run with both plotters on different scales--one zoomed in for details, the other zoomed out for the big picture as I'm running a route. Sometimes weather on the small scale (zoomed out) and sometimes with radar overlay on one or the other. So it's nice to see AIS and DSC targets on both. Or do I need to connect AIS and DSC to both plotters to see this? My 3000 series network shares this data.
