Newquay AIS and weather station
« on: 15 September, 2010, 04:25:20 pm »
Newquay weather station runs the AIS station, a comar 200N, using a Metz Manta-6 VHF Antenna, operational since 18/7/2009. The data is forwarded to various sites using aisdispatcher 24/7 and can be found here

The weather station is a WS2300, running 24/7.

I presume you are also responsible for the AIS data from Falmouth harbour which has been somewhat strange lately showing 11 vessels all with a speed of 1.5 knots although moored. Even accounting for tides they would not all show the same speed. Also none of the ships seem to have moved for several days.

Sorry for being so long replying was unaware of your reply, No its not my setup, I just look after the newquay kit, just have links on my page to open up the other locations on  Marine Traffic website.

There are 2 stations which cover Falmouth, one Coverack (Receiving Station Id: 716) and the other is Falmouth (Receiving Station Id: 788)
Both of these stations are relatively new to the marine traffic site.
