Bald Eagle Watching

Bald Eagle Watching

I managed to get a nice set of shots of one of our local Bald Eagles.  We have been enjoying them from the vantage point of our cliff top home here 80 feet above the bay … but they are fast and a bit tough to photograph.

150 mile range for our AIS receiver setup. For some reason VHF propagation has really improved past two days.  Night and day thing.  Also I think the J Pole antenna is helping as well.  I found a pick which just displays the ships which a particular station is reporting on.  Its called Current Reception.  Heres the ships 589 is reporting on at the moment.  Just a week ago 30 miles was pretty good and now its 150.
