Long Island has been fringe in and out all day.

Now at 6pm, I had two hits.
Montville CT Fire (159.3675 210.7) and
Winstead CT PD (155.565 162.2).

It's not even sundown yet. Good sign for things to come?

I agree that this was VHi only. Maine was up huge this morning.

Also had a UNID P25 with an odd NAC. Will update on that when I get home.

FM Band was strongly Portland coming in as well. 93.1, 97.9, 100.9, 101.9, 102.9 all from Portland were in, in the car driving in.

Still. USCG Sector Delaware Bay just now on CH16, and prior to that Canadian Coast Guard in French. One of the better VHF openings in quite some time. Strangely though seems to still not be open on UHF and above.
