The Santa Barbara Wireless Foundation currently operates three AIS (Automatic Identification System) receivers for receiving automated reports from ships at sea. One is located on Santa Ynez Peak, another on Diablo Peak on Santa Cruz Island, and the other is located at our main repeater site above the Mesa. The data we receive is decoded, analyzed, and recorded in hourly log files 24/7. Historical data can be provided for scientific and other research purposes on request. Click here
