A marine Radio is an essential piece of equipment on your boat.
Available as either handheld VHF or a fixed radio they are extremely useful in emergency situations.
It is NOT safe to purely rely on mobile phones as they are not always in range.
Furthermore, the emergency channels are monitored 24/7 by Coastguard, plus any emergency broadcast will be heard by other craft in the area.
A cell phone lets you talk to one person, a marine RADIO lets you talk to many people.
If you intend to use your VHF radio for communication purposes you will need to hold a VHF radio operator’s qualification.
Coastguard offers short courses for Marine VHF Radio Operators and issues call signs.
