Thought I had better start a thread about Radios as I've gone to so much trouble getting one .
I've always wanted my own VHF Marine radio ever since I done the course and got a certificate .I enjoy using the radio and often prefer to that position on the boat rather then Helm , or talking to the boat from the control room .The funny thing is , is its illegal to use a VHF Marine radio on land but because we are a declared SAR facility we have a base station and use handhelds on the beach alot for launching and recovery , safety , training and beach searches .
We have 4 crew members who are booked into a radio course next month so the coming 3 weeks will see alot of radio work to give these guys an insight .
Sure the boat has its own radios but its nice to have your own
It should be with me within the next week
