This raises a whole bunch of questions: can just anybody have a radio, what type is allowed, how do you use it, are there regulations, are there standards, can you get in trouble using it, serious trouble?
All these questions and even more you haven’t had the opportunity to think about can be answered! The experienced, certified, seamen educators of the Banana River Sail and Power Squadron will offer training in Marine Communications right here in our community.

4. GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety System)
5. FCC Rules and Regulations
