VHF Afloat

VHF Afloat


Sara Hopkinson



Product Description

by Sara Hopkinson

Learn how to use your VHF DSC radio. A VHF set has a variety of functions, from making calls to getting information and advice; in an emergency it is your lifeline and far more effective than a mobile phone. This guide covers licensing the equipment and gaining the operator certificate before taking you through each type of call.

Each procedure is clearly illustrated using the story of the yacht Sierra, showing how the radio is used on passage to communicate with marinas, other vessels and the Coastguard, including how a MAYDAY is managed by the rescue services.

Use the book to help pass the assessment, and then keep it on board when you need to make a call – the facts will be right at your fingertips.
