Marine Communication Systems

Event Phone: 713-865-6992

This class covers the Marine Communication Systems Course.

It will be taught every Monday night, on the listed schedule.  The first dates are instruction, followed by an overall review, and finally the exam.  If you cannot make it to one or more of the instruction dates, you should be okay.  Please plan on attending the review and exam dates, as they must be done in person.

You will learn a lot about marine-based communications.  The topics that will be covered are:

  • Radio History & Communication
  • RF Spectrum
  • VHF-FM Radio Communications
  • FCC Rules & Maritime Radio Licenses
  • Radiotelephone Operating Procedures
  • Other Marine Communication Services
  • Radio Maintenance
  • Long-Range Marine Radio Communication Services

If there is interest in MF/HF radio, an optional 2-hour addition to the class will be offered the week after the exam.  About 20-pages of reading are involved; includes available communications devices, benefits, antenna systems, and non-voice and digital communications.   We will do the homework at the conclusion of the class.

Special Note:  The course is best when in-person, however, the Squadron has a blended learning (in-person and teleconference) solution if needed for a student who cannot attend in person.
