VHF Afloat explains how to use your VHF DSC radio. It covers licensing the equipment and gaining the operator certificate, and then takes you through each type of call.

Each procedure is clearly illustrated using the yacht Sierra, to show how the radio is used on a passage to communicate with marinas, other vessels and the Coastguard, including how a MAYDAY is managed by the rescue services.

Use VHF Afloat to help pass the assessment, and then keep it on board when you need to make a call - the facts will be right at your fingertips.

From the Back Cover:

A VHF set has a variety of functions: use it to call other craft, marinas and the Coastguard; listen to information broadcasts, gale warnings or even get medical advice from a doctor. In an emergency it is your lifeline and far more effective than a mobile phone. All of these uses make VHF an invaluable piece of kit on board.
