Coast Guard Sector Baltimore

From The RadioReference Wiki


As stated on the official Coast Guard (CG) web site the mission of CG Sector Baltimore is to effectively and efficiently:

  • Maximize unit readiness,
  • Prevent or respond to incidents,
  • Understand and address our customers’ needs,
  • Achieve unity of effort with our partners,
  • In order to provide maritime safety, security, accessibility, and environmental protection for the National Capital Region, and the upper Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.

CG Sector Baltimore & its subordinatre units include Aids-to-Navigation Teams in Baltimore; Crisfield; Potomac. There are Small Boat Stations in Annapolis; Crisfield; Curtis Bay; Oxford; St. Inigoes; Stillpond; & Washington (Bolling AFB). CG Station Curtis Bay, in addition to being an active Small Boat Station, also houses the Coast Guard's main shipyard which performs maintenance, upgrades and new boat building for the entire Coast Guard fleet. Due to the shipyard, there's usually a interesting "flow" of out-of-area vessels showing up on the marine channels.

The CG Sector Baltimore also is assisted by several area CG Auxiliary aircraft which provide airborne patrols of the Chesapeake Bay area during peak activity times, normally April-October. The CG Sector Baltimore area of responsibility covers the entire Chesapeake Bay, which runs roughly from the Delaware/Pennsylvania border down to the mouth of the Bay near Norfolk Virginia. In order to be able to maintain VHF communications over this area they use a VHF repeater which is located atop the main structure of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, near Annapolis Maryland. The Sector radio operators refer to this location as the " high site"

Soon after 9/11, the Coast Guard was delegated the responsibility for low-level air defense of the National Capitol Region (NCR). The Coast Guard has since kept at least two HH-65Cs Dolphin helicopters based at Reagan National Airport (KDCA). These aircraft rotate to KDCA from CGAS Atlantic City.
