Ship to Shore Radio

Post by tuberadiogeek on Tue Sep 10, 2013 10:04 pm

I seen what looks to be an inexpensive "ship to shore" radio on my local CL and its quite cheap. I tried googling ship to shore radio and got lots of different types of stuff but none that was what i was trying to figure out. What i'm trying to figure out is what frequencies would something like that cover and would it do me any good to use inside? As i'm always up for something different to listen to, plus i have 100' wire antenna not being used right now. http://limaohio.craigslist.org/ele/4059181312.html

Around 150 to 160 Mhz. Be careful purchasing any marine radios. When I worked in Michigan, we would get a lot of mb radios in for service, looking really nice outside and rusted and corroded heavily on the inside. I felt like a coroner pronouncing on the poor things.

Looks like a receiver part of a ship to shore, with a horn to call out on.
Receiver is obviously modern with a digital read out. I don't even see a mannufacturer's name on it.. In my opinion, skip it.

So that would be part of the 2 meter band? Which means i'd likely hear local hams. I can kind of make out part of a name- eclipse is what i can read. It looks like it has a weather band in it which is always useful. It would be more convenient than manually typing in the weather band and ham bands in my old scanner that has to have a powered speaker hooked to it to hear. It is nice to listen to hams when crazy weather comes since they do a skywarn network here. The hear and see stuff the weatherman doesnt. I didnt think it was too bad of a deal for 10.00, as that horn is probably worth that alone.

Go for it, what's $10 if it works, and if not, no big loss.
