A VHF radio is an important piece of safety equipment on board and it is vital to understand the correct procedures. Unnecessary transmissions could block out a Mayday distress call.  The Marine Radio SRC VHF Online Course is the minimum qualification required by law to control the operation of VHF and VHF Digital Selective Calling (DSC) equipment on any vessel voluntarily fitted with a radio. This includes both fixed and hand held equipment using International channels.
