Responsible yacht and powerboat owners always fit a VHF radiotelephone. But what if you plan to sail beyond its 30-mile range?
The next step is a Single Sideband (SSB) set, which uses the short wave (HF) band. With a range of several thousands miles, it is ideal for communication by voice or text with the shore and with other vessels.
This book explains how SSB works, how to choose and install your set and how to get the best out of it. The range of satelite services, especially the affordable telex/fax/e-mail service, is also covered in some details.
A whole chapter is devoted to the new Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) which came into full operation in 1999. Section of VHF, Satcom, Amateur Radio, citizen band, weather services, Maritime Safety Information and time signals are also included.
Marine SSB Operations is based on Michael Gale's 25 years experience at his Radio School where he trained thousands of marine radiotelephone operation. It is an excellent preparation for a radio course, for the exam needed to gain the International Operator's Qualification for Small Craft, and a useful reference book to keep on board.
Recommended for all the 'restricted' operator certificates throughout the world.
