Xband Radar on R/V Sally Ride
WAMOS/Rutter  radar head/antenna now installed on R/V Sally Ride, cabling and electronics install on 12/19.  It is permanently installed on the Ride.
Scripps will need one berth on the Ride for WAMOS operator.
Our land based X-Band container at LFO6 (Kelvin Hughes install, below Lion’s Head) has both air and marine band radios, any brand will do really, we just need to agree on frequencies.Position update for instuments
