Do you cringe every time you pick up the radio handset? Are you unsure of what to say or how to say it? If your boat is sinking, is your radio properly set up to bring help to your exact location with the push of a button? If you or a crew member have a medical emergency, is your VHF programmed to automatically call for assistance while you perform first aid or CPR?

You may think you know what to do in a real-life emergency, but when you read the distress calls and situations within these chapters you'll understand why you need the skills to be gained here. You won't find any charts on the frequency spectrum, or radio theory in this guide. Just a boatload of knowledge you can use right now, presented in a way that keeps you turning the pages. This is the only Marine Radio Guide that takes you out on the water with real-life scenarios gained from the author's decades of experience sailing around the world, boating America's Great Loop, and exploring the Sea of Cortez in Mexico.

This ultimate Mariners' Guide covers Basic through Advanced VHF skills:
  • Basic radio operations and lingo
  • Voice and automated emergency calls
  • Bridge and lock openings
  • VHF weather forecasts
  • Automated Information System (AIS) and Digital Selective Calling (DSC)
  • How to join and run a Cruiser Net

Share this book with your crew. Remember, YOU may be the one with the medical emergency or too busy trying to save your sinking boat to call for help.
