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
