Newport, Oregon Receiver
The S-Meter site servers and remotely-contollable Kenwood R-5000 receiver have been moved from Salt Lake City, Utah to Newport, Oregon. The new receiving site is at the top of a 260-foot (79-meter) hill overlooking Yaquina Bay and the Pacific Ocean. This location will provide outstanding HF reception from the Pacific Rim and strong VHF marine radio reception from the sea and nearby bay. A wideband vertical HF antenna and ground radial system have been installed. A VHF antenna will be installed soon.
This is the receiving site view looking southwest toward Australia.
