Hi Everyone ...
Traveling last night made me really appreciate one of the programs we have: AIS (Automatic Identification System) ... it receives VHF signals from ships and shows their location, direction of travel, and speed ... and it puts an icon on our computer navigation screen so we can tell what those radar blips are! Love it ... the ship icons remind me of those orange/yellow/white candy corns... with the pointy end being the bow, of course. We usually pick up the signals around 12 miles, but sometimes quite a bit further.
That's it for us!
