Communication for Land and Sea

Whether you are navigating offshore or inland waterways, a communication device will be one of the most important tools on board your maritime vessel – even if it is just a jet ski!

Here are some of the reasons you might need to communicate:

  • Sending and responding to distress signals
  • Marine navigation advisories
  • Weather reports
  • Contacting other vessels
  • Communicating with harbours, locks, bridges and marinas
  • Liaising with the coast guards and summoning rescue services

VHF Marine Electronics

Very high frequency (VHF) is an internationally agreed upon frequency so that mariners across the world have a common frequency to communicate across.

Although VHF marine radios are on board most all vessels throughout the world, some mariners may find their marine communications requirements extend beyond VHF range and into medium frequency/high-frequency single sideband (MF/HF-SSB).
