MARINE COMMUNICATION RADIOS
MARINE COMMUNICATION RADIOSMore to come so stay tuned...
Boats on the water should use Very High Frequency (VHF) and marine-band radios have been around for many years and remain the primary means of communication for boat radioa throughout the United States. VHF boat radios should be your "go-to" device in an emergency unless you are practically shouting distance from shore. The main uses of a VHF radio are:
- Distress calling and SAFETY
- Ship to shore communications
- Navigation (vessels to bridges, etc.)
- Marine operator to place calls to shore
- NOAA Weather Broadcasts
For reliable on-the-water communications, we recommend using either hand-held or fixed-mount VHF radios. If you experience engine failure, a storm disables you, or you find yourself in a true emergency, a boat VHF radio can be your lifeline to help. In Coast Guard jurisdictions, VHFs are monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
