ENJOY FAST, CLEAR, AFFORDABLE COMMUNICATIONS—SHIP-TO-SHIP OR SHIP-TO-SHORE

When you’re miles offshore and the nearest vessel is somewhere over the horizon, you need a fast, reliable, easy-to-operate communication system. Marine Amateur Radio provides all the information you need to select, install, and operate an inexpensive and completely dependable ham radio system on any boat, power or sail.

This well-illustrated guide succinctly explains how ham radio gives you the advantages of a single-sideband system at a fraction of the cost. You’ll learn how to use your radio for voice or Morse code communications, check and send e-mail, link up with on-shore signal repeaters to extend your range, and even make personal phone calls using your ham radio. Designed to lie flat for easy use onboard, this compact manual shows you how to:

  • Obtain a Technician Class or General Class operator’s license
  • Use ham radio for coastal, high-seas, or worldwide communications
  • Tune the optimal frequency band for the time of day and range of transmission
