This is the former Maritimes Scanning Site, established in 1999. In the past this was the leading radio enthusiast site in the Maritimes and, during its heyday, was featured internationally in Popular Communications. It has morphed over recent years into a low-key personal site retaining some specialty radio topics, and now including some of my other interests. Outside of my extensive aeronautical radio section it mostly serves as a convenient spot for me to easily access and manage my links. If you notice errors or can supply updates, please contact me by email: marscan1ATgmail.com
Most of the following links are internal to reach jump-off pages to specific sub-topics. A few external links are included in the boxes as I access them daily.

Hey I know my site is old-school, cluttered, and not very flashy, but it works for me.
AERONAUTICAL RADIO AND OBSERVATION
I have been listening to aeronautical radio for several decades and have become very familiar with it, and with the procedures used n air movements. I combine radio listening with occasional live observation out at the local airport, plus I very commonly watch the flights on sites such as www.flightradar24.com and www.planefinder.net that depict aero traffic in real-time and near real-time. I often use Flightaware for aero arrivals and departures at Halifax and elsewhere. My pages focus on Halifax but are useful for others in the Maritimes and elsewhere.

MARINE RADIO AND OBSERVATION
This is a secondary radio interest for me, even though I used to be in the navy and in fact was a Communications Officer. Nowadays I occasionally listen to the goings-on in Halifax harbour, and pay some attention to cruise ships. I combine my radio listening with use of the www.marinetraffic.com website that shows ship positions and more. I also check out the views on the webcams listed below.

I began my radio hobby by listening for distant AM radio stations back in the 60's. Click here for my broadcast jumpoff page which has pages of my own plus several links of interest.
|FUTURE PAGE: Canadian English. Sure I know that you cannot effectively legislate language, and sure I like the USA and love visiting there, but I feel strongly that we need to preserve our unique Canadian brand of English spelling and pronunciation. Please do not say "Zee" around me! This will be a page for my rants on this topic|
FUTURE PAGE: The Canadian and
British Monarchy, and the British nobility, baronetage and knightage.
Canadian and British Orders, Decorations and Medals. I have a
peculiar fascination with all of this. For example, who is
15th in line for the throne? Who came after Edward II when
he was deposed and murdered in 1327? Who ranks higher, a
marquess or an earl? What are the Baronets of Nova Scotia.
This page will be all about these topics and more. For now
here are some related links:
