You may know I spent all summer (June till early October) making improvements to operations at Marine Weather Center. Briefly:
Installed new dual-band, high-gain, directional Yagi antenna, custom made by Opti-Beam in Germany for the 8MHz and 12MHz channels we use.
Optimized the horizontal loop antenna we’ll continue to use on 4MHz.
Antennas are mounted atop a new radio tower.
Purchased new radios, and will use 2 radios (each on its own band) on each Net.
Built a new office so I could properly install and use all the new gear, and install additional computer monitors to improve my forecasting.
If you are anywhere in the W Atlantic/US E Coast/Bahamas/Caribbean, you should hear me VERY WELL when you are on the correct channel, at the right time, and I have the Beam pointed in your direction.
Details are below. I look forward to your feedback and constructive input…Chris.
