Details

More and more boaters want access to the internet afloat. Marinas and ports as well as a large number of cafes, hotels, restaurants and service providers offer wi-fi connectivity but you may just miss that vital connection if you're moored or anchored away from the dock - especially if you're below decks about to enjoy a movie or catch up on email. The WL70 can provide connections up to about + mile depending upon conditions.

 It's threaded base, fits a standard 1" (14TPI) VHF type mount (not supplied) and being fully waterproof the WL70 can be permanently mounted outside or just taken out into the cockpit when moored for temporary installation.

Even if your computer already has an internal Wi-Fi adaptor, this can be disabled and you can take advantage of the superior range (and speed) that this system will offer.

Wi-Fi range depends on many local factors, but Digital Yacht has seen ranges of up to 1 km with this low cost system. In general, using an internal Wi-Fi adaptor typically found on a notebook, you'll be lucky to find the signal at the end of the dock, so if you plan to access the internet whilst on board, the WL60 could be the solution for you.

Features:

  • 802.11n high sensitivity Wi-Fi modem
  • Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10 compatible
  • Mac OSX 10.4 to 10.10 (Yosemite) compatible
  • Compatible with all popular LINUX distributions including Raspberry Pi

Algae Bloom Spawns New Water Monitoring Program In Utah Lake

The result of a harmful algae bloom in the summer of 2016, the enhanced Utah Lake water quality monitoring program, reached its one year milestone in September. Located near the Provo and Orem metropolitan areas, the lake is Utah’s largest freshwater body and a popular water recreation and fishing spot. In the summer of 2016, recreation users reported an unusual amount of scum on the surface of the water. Utah Lake is monitored by the Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ). Prior to the 2016 harmful algae bloom (HAB), the UDWQ successfully used regular water sample testing and citizen reporting to stay on top of any incidents.

Data Buoys Study Turbid Water Environments in Lake Erie Basin

What started as a study into a relatively unexamined type of cyanobacteria has turned biologists from Bowling Green State University into an integral part of the effort to monitor and protect the drinking water in Sandusky, Ohio. Dr. George Bullerjahn, the Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University, has done considerable work in the study of beneficial cyanobacterial organisms in the eastern and central basins of Lake Erie. His current project is focused on the growth of the toxic cyanobacterium Planktothrix in Sandusky Bay. Over the course of his career Bullerjahn has collaborated with Dr. Steven Wilhelm from the University of Tennessee.

Bottom Composition Matters, Underwater Cameras Can Help

As a pro angler, I use my Lowrance electronics every single time I am on the water. They are great at locating fish and structure, but when combined with my FishSens SondeCAM HD Underwater Camera they can show everything. A camera is a great tool for someone who wants to better understand what they are seeing on their electronics and for me, it helps get a clear picture of one of the most important things in bass fishing: bottom composition. Hard Spots Hard bottoms are usually the best, and bass will relate to hard bottoms of different types depending on the region. My Lowrance StructureScan will show hard bottoms as bright, white areas on the screen where softer bottoms will be more grayish.
