Copied the VE1CBC Yarmouth, NS CW beacon 144.284 and the N2GHR Long Island, NY CW beacon 144.279.
Checked into the Captian's Net in Nova Scotia via the VE1YAR 2 meter repeater 146.730 located in Yarmouth, NS.
Copied but didn't ID a NOAA WX station 162.500 giving weather for the Chesapeake Bay and mid Atlantic states. I should have stuck around for an ID but I got bored.
Copied Bay of Fundy Control on VHF Ch14 with traffic for a vessel concerning Black Bay, NB.

Just heard Halifax, NS CG VHF 16 commenting on "Lots of VHF skip due to VHF conditions."
