Communication Station Boston

Cape Cod Massachusetts



COMMSTA Boston is located on 542 acres, approximately 75 miles South of Boston, on Cape Cod. Specifically, we are located on Otis Air National Guard Base (ANGB) near the town of Sandwich. Otis ANGB is sometimes referred to as the “Massachusetts Military Reservation” and is also the location of USCG Air Station Cape Cod.  Our mission is to provide reliable long range radio communications that Mariners of all kinds depend upon.  We do so with a combination of 14 Transmitters and  20 Receivers. Our primary responsibility is the maintenance of the High and Medium frequency communications equipment. Our call sign is NMF and our longstanding motto is "No Call Unanswered".  The equipment and facilities are maintained by a crew of 20 Coast Guard men and women. The different rates stationed at COMMSTA include ET, DC, SK, MK, ME, and FN.
