Automated VHF Radio Check System Installed at ISEC

The Inland Seas Education Center in Suttons Bay is now hosting and automated radio check system for boaters.  This system was installed last week with assistance from Sea Tow.  To use the system, boaters should tune their VHF radio to Channel 28 and say "Radio Check, this is (vessel name)" and then wait for the automated reply.  A successful reply indicates that your radio is transmitting.  Thanks to ISEA volunteer Lee Hepner for installing this system for the benefit of area boaters.  (Note that radio checks are prohibited on Channel 16).
