Marine VHF Radio Use Tech Talk

The marine VHF radio is the “go-to” communication device for mariners.  Marine VHF Radio Use, the second of our Marine Safety Tech Talk topics, will show you how to use this essential system for both safety and recreation needs.

We will discuss the capabilities and features of the marine VHF radio, including which channels to use and how to access current marine weather data.  We will then describe the key elements of how to use the system.  How to follow important marine notices from the Coast Guard, how to hail other boaters and marinas and, critically important, how to make an effective distress call.

Finally, we will provide a VHF radio call scenario to each Tech Talk attendee.  Learn the VHF radio basics and then practice VHF radio calls using realistic scenarios that you are almost certain to encounter while on the water.

Bring your questions and experience to this important Tech Talk hosted by Kevin Jones and Bob Underwood on Wednesday, December 7 at 7PM in the Vashon Library meeting room.
