New Fog Horn In Ludington

Recommended Posts

Would like to make everyone aware of the new fog horn that was installed in Ludington. This is a boater activated fog horn! The boater needs to put his radio on channel 79 and key his mic 5 times within 10 seconds. This change was just announced recently in the local papers. The boater needs to be within 200 yards for the horn to activate but when the local reported tested it he reported that it did not activated until well inside of 100 yards. Sorry but this is just way too close for me in the FOG.

Unfortunately the announcment came a day after a fisherman lost his life when the charter boat he was on hit rocks and sank in the Manistee river channel due to heavy fog. The article explained that these horns have been in place in some of the Southern Lake Michigan ports.
