Safety Equipment Explained
The Marine VHF Radio is an essental part of your equipment, but it has some limitations as it can (at times) have limited range. Channel 16 is monitored at all times by HM Coastguard, all Coastwatch stations and other vessals. Modern hand held units are easely carried and are relatively inexpensive. Users should make them selves familier with the correct procedures for their use. A licence is required for normal daily use.
