1. We are sorrowed to report that one of the Founding Members has passed on. Dee (Righthand) is well remembered as contributing much to the operation of SurvivalMonkey, and is already greatly missed. Little lady, big person.

    I use these Radio Signals every day... They tell me what vessels are in the area, Speed, Course, Destnation, CallSign, MSSI Number, Cargo Type, vessel Name, & Home Port....

    As I read the map there seems to be no mid-Alantic or mid-Pacific traffic. Is that correct?

    Yea, VHF only goes about 100 miles from the Coast, and the AIS Receivers that feed the Reporting System, are usually Shore Based...
