Using a marine radio

New radio guide to assist skippers

Skippers in WA now have access to a free guide specially produced to boost the boating community's understanding of marine radio requirements and operating procedures.

Skippers in WA now have access to a free guide specially produced to boost the boating community's understanding of marine radio requirements and operating procedures.

DoT coordinator of Safety Education Laurie Adams said communication was vital in an emergency and knowing how to use a marine radio properly could help save a life.

"The new guide details when a vessel is required to have a marine radio, the need for it to be licensed, the channels to use and operating procedures," Mr Adams said.

"Before and after each trip skippers should log on and log off and the guide includes tips on this procedure. It also details the different types of distress calls to ensure the correct one is made."

The guide, which is the first of its kind produced for WA skippers, includes a comprehensive list of call signs, VHF, 27Mhz and HF frequencies to contact local volunteer marine rescue groups. VHF repeater stations and Australian Coast Radio Monitors (ACRM) base stations for the entire State are also listed.

Vessels navigating more than 5 nautical miles off the coast need a marine radio. However, it's recommended to have a marine radio when going offshore any distance. Mobile telephones, although useful as a backup to communications, cannot replace a marine radio.

"DoT suggests a copy of the guide is kept on vessels with a marine radio for easy reference for logging on and off or for reference in the event of an emergency," Mr Adams said.

Visit www.transport.wa.gov.au/radios to download the new guide or any of DoT's free boating guides or other safety publications. Contact the Marine Safety Hotline on 1300 836 308 to be sent a copy or for any other boating safety information.
