Using VHF Marine Radio
Welcome to the Seminar!
With low cost, excellent voice quality, and interoperability with other communications systems and emergency systems, todays VHF FM Marine radios are the primary mode of communications for Coastal and Inland boaters, both recreational and commercial. All VHF marine radios receive NOAA weather stations, are an excellent means to get assistance in an emergency. They also provide communication to other boaters, and shore facilities such as marinas.
VHF is the “standard” for marine communications and should be carried aboard any vessel. This seminar will give you the basics of VHF radios. There will be a short discussion on how to select the “best radio” for your vessel and the type of boating you do, and another short discussion on other means of communications (flags and flares).
Everyone is invited to listen to the seminar.
Credit (and certificate) is issued to paid participants.
