We have a VHF in our home office, which puts the antenna over 70 ft. above sea level. This gives us essentially the best civilian radio on the island for VHF range. We have communicated with sailboats to around 50 miles radius, and can communicate with aircraft much further. We hear USCG in the Andros area and south of there often.

We've met quite a few cruisers passing through Providenciales because of our VHF.

Two Americans move to the TCI.
