The receiving station is presently located in Hopkinton, RI (the town just north of Westerly). The receiver is a Icom IC-2100H, the antenna is a commercial grade dual dipole array at approximately 35 feet above ground, fed with LMR600 coax cable. Despite an very good equipment setup and excellent receive sensitivity, I am unable to reliably receive vessels in Narragansett Bay due to distance and land topography from my location. Plans are in the works to relocate feed to a better location in Westerly RI about a mile from the shoreline with tall antenna.
I also operate the Southern RI and SE CT Fire and EMS feed. I welcome feedback and comments on both feeds. You can email me at email@example.com.
