A marine radio can save lives. It’s important that:
You know the correct channels to use, and how and when to use them
You know distress and safety procedures, including how to access search and rescue facilities
You know how to respond to an emergency call
Your messages are understood, and others know how to respond
You know what DSC is and the benefits of connecting a GPS to your radio
You know when and how to operate an EPIRB in a distress situation.
This course will be run over 3 evenings from 6.30pm to 8.30pm
