Guides use 88A.Zpg said:The boat I recently bought came with a VHF radio and I am wondering if there is any information on basic usage available. I know there are courses offered and I am planning on taking one in January but at present all I am doing is monitoring the weather with it and know the emergency channel but that's it.
I would like to know which channels are used for what. I would like to monitor local radio traffic between boats and perhaps be able to contact other boats while fishing but don't know what channels to listen to or use.
Any help here is much appreciated.
They go by their boats names.
Listen in and you may hear a juicy morsel of information.
