All About Marine Radio

Marine radios provide boaters the most effective and reliable communication when on the water. VHF radio communication is essential during emergencies and is often superior to cell phones. They can also be helpful in a number of other non-emergency scenarios like securing a transient slip at a destination marina. The variety of radios available can be confusing and their use can be intimidating. This course will teach you how to choose the proper Marine VHF radio for your boating style and give you the confidence to operate it effectively.
