Where I am (Upper Chessie), they have at least two stations (Annapolis and Great Oaks Landing) that my 20 year old basic VHF reaches.
OK, OK, I admit it is a stretch to call this a 'project' but it is definitely 'low bucks' (free!). I hope pointing out this service out helps someone.
If nothing else, it might reduce the stupid radio checks on Ch16 followed by the inevitable admonishments by USCG.

I didn't know about this. Thanks.
I'll remember this when I move East.
