Hello,

Live about 20 miles due West of Boston, so probably at the limits, more or less, of line of sight.
But perhaps some "tall" towers in use ?

Question: Very interested in Marine monitoring, if at all possible..

What would be the a few of the most likely frequencies from Boston,
of any kind of Marine traffic, for me to try ?

Don't have a scanner, so would have to switch manually between a few.

e.g., C.G., Harbor Traffic, Cruise Ships etc.
Would be happy with most anything "active".

BTW: Are all NFM, or...?

Thanks,
B.

161.6000 VHF 20 Rptr, other than that at 20 mi ?
All depends on your Antenna.

Give 16, 21, 22 a Try
