The best reason for fitting a marine radio to a vessel and using it responsibly is its potential to save lives, but a radio is simply an expensive anchor if you don’t know how to use it properly. As well as giving you the operational skill essential for the confident and responsible use of a marine radio, a significant benefit of studying for a certificate arises from knowing the distress and safety procedures. In an emergency, knowledge of distress and safety procedures assists everyone involved in the rescue. For radio training and courses, contact Robin Randall on 0427 013 335.
