It is important to be aware of any rules and regulations surrounding radio channel use etc. when using Marine Radios as Marine Radios are important source of communication in emergencies, and emergency channels should be only be used in emergencies.
Why Are Quality Marine Radios Important?
As stated above, Marine Radios are one of the most essential safety tools to have fitted on board any vessel. It can not be stressed enough how important it is to be able to contact other boats, emergency services, receive navigational warnings and current and forecast weather updates. This is why it is important to have a high quality Marine Radio to guarantee easy yet powerful communication across large distances out on the water.
This radio line of communication is paramount to safe boating and can save lives, as most mobile phones are rendered useless in certain areas and certain distances from shore. Unlike a mobile phone call, a radio call is broadcast and means any nearby vessels tuned into the frequency can provide a quicker response than those at shore. A good quality Marine Radio is also easier to locate using direction finding equipment, enabling a safer rescue in the case of emergency.
Tough and able to withstand some of the harshest environments, top quality Marine radios will last longer and provide better communication for longer.
