EVENT: Marine Radio Course
April 1 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The local Power Squadron is offering the Maritime Radio ROC(M) course at the clubhouse on April 1 and 4 with exam to follow. The course, taught by club member Brian Keir, teaches emergency radio procedures and everyday operating techniques, choice of frequencies, phonetic alphabet, procedural words and phrases, as well as Digital Selective Calling and the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System, (DSC/GMDSS). This complete package with CD, and the new Digital Selective Calling section, will prepare you for the Restricted Operator Certificate (Maritime) with DSC Endorsement exam.
To operate a maritime radio, you need the certificate. It’s the law!
