Is there anyone here who knows with any certainty the following concerning Horning SC’s radio comms system?
I see they have a large antenna mast outside the clubhouse:
1. What is the range they are getting from the club to the boats.
2. Are they operating on VHF?

Thank you!

Not sure what frequency they operate on but as vhf covers 30mhz to 300mhz then would think vhf would be a good guess.
As for range , that would depend on a number of factors including power output, height and antenna types.
Any special reason for asking. ???

Thanks. Yes, - the reason I am asking is I’m looking at doing something similar (overseas).

I’m aware of the height and antenna types situation and that was what I was interested about - despite the club having a raised antenna, the rescue boats don’t (as far as I know?) and so are working on handheld or fixed units. I wondered for example if they are working as far as St Benet’s or further.

Hope this is ok.

No the club doesn't use VHF radio, it has two vhf private business channels.
We don't generally give out the frequencies, and certainly not on an open forum. This is because the radios are used for rescue and emergency purposes. The last thing we'd need is some idiot jamming us..

The sailing club base station reaches the normal race course rescue boat handhelds from the club house to Dydlers mill easily, going up river from there the trees then block the signal.
For the 3 Rivers Race, each guardship is issued with a small base station ( no bigger than a car radio), and a small 6ft pole with the aerial on top.
The guardships are at,
Ludham Bridge,
South Walsham,
Thurne mouth,
Acle,
the Stracy arms.
Hickling broad.
All receive and transmit well.

By personal choice I take an old mast with me to Hickling and can receive all but Stracey and South Walsham easily..

The biggest block on the broads to reception is the trees..

They are using VHF, FM modulation. I can hear all of them from Ludham.
I do know the frequencies but I gather it is not for publication.

Thank you for the info.
I certainly didn’t want to know the frequencies,
Just understand the setup which is now clear. Thank you.
