Interesting 'hobby' web site for the Solent area

Not sure if this site has been on another thread, but very interesting to link it in. Great live web cam of the Bush aircraft carrier.
Great site.

I was wondering how to go about it, don't know about the tech side of it but do you need permission? Don't need permission to listen on my VHF, does it matter what equipment I use to listen?

Sorry Paul, I didn't see that even though I looked at that thread

Still quite an amazing hub of compiled information for us on the Solent.

The technology is straight forward, but you would never get permission and re-broadcasting is a breach of your VHF operators license.

Probably true although if you do a search there's many websites streaming marine vhf and no one seems to be stopping them.

Interesting that the website in the original post has a pop up that says you're not allowed to listen to it unless you have permission

I think the only way to try is to take the operating license of the person with the gear, if they dint have one to start with it leaves them stumped. Whereas peeps like you and I find our radio licenses quite handy.

Just heard a great argument between QHM and Southampton VTS/pilots about who's in charge of what area

QHM - Norman Spirit - Do not proceed north of nab without a pilot
Pilots - Norman Spirit - ignore QHM, keep coming
Pilots - QHM - Look, we can do this on here or we can do it on the phone etc etc

Yep, its quite a good site, going from strength to strength over the last few years.....amazing how quickly a news story gets reported to the site, sometimes the same day as the event actually took place....

We seem to pop up on there quite regularly, this month one of ours ('Phenix') is seen using her FiFi system after an 'incident' at the refinery.....(news story posted 7/5/11)

It seems that nowadays, there is always someone watching...

In a vaguely similar vein has anyone else tried the ship finder app for iPhone / iPad? I have the full version for iPad and it's pretty neat. AIS feeds nationwide, overlaid on googlemaps. I keep the iPad in an aqua pack on the rib - it's obviously not as good as radar but at least let's you point knowledgeably at ships and know where they came from/are going/speed/bearing/are called.

I've got the free shipfinder app on my phone, very impressive! And dead easy to use!

I would be lost without it...even though i seem to spend a third of each working day staring at a 19" monitor linked to a chart plotter showing all AIS targets in the Solent, the Iphone app has become a valuable tool which alows me to keep track of whats important even when im not around said previously mentioned monitor....
Well done to the man that designed it
