Notices to Mariners

M151-17 West Coast VHF Base Stations

Notice No.

Mariners are advised the radio site at Mt Read has been affected by a lightning strike.

This has disrupted VHF services for three of Tas Maritime Radio’s base stations.  An area from Port Davey to Temma is now unavailable through the TMR network.  HF is still available on the West and North West Coast.

Operations out of Smithton Radio via Three Hummock Island are also still available.

A further Notice to Mariners will be issued when the system is restored to normal.
