Vantage Vue @ Barnegat, NJ Public Dock
« on: September 07, 2017, 07:36:39 PM »
In June, I moved to the town of Barnegat, NJ, which has a nice public dock on Barnegat Bay that happens to be very close to my new place.  I realized that the dock is within 1000' of my place (within range for a Vue or VP2) and decided to propose to the Township my idea of installing a station at the dock that would be available for the public to use.  The Township was fully on board and excited, so we went ahead with the project.  The result is a Vue mounted on a stainless steel mount attached to the dockmaster's shed, right along the edge of the bay.
