We are looking for better coverage of Lake Michigan and wonder if you could help us get in contact with amateur radio operators in the area? What we would like to do is offer a free AIS receiver and accessories to anyone who is willing to host one. With the receiver it would feed our system at http://ais.boatnerd.com and provide feeds to any other systems that the host desires. All that's needed is a location with Internet, we can provide an antenna or share a feed. Thanks for any help, feel free to pass this message along to anyone you think would be interested.
