the ships with which they normally communicate. Private coast stations
may provide environmental communication service in areas where adequate
service is not available.

marine radios in the vicinity of the station's fixed transmitter site

utility station authorization and must be limited to contact with the
associated private coast station and ship stations in the vicinity of
the private coast station.
