What is a marine VHF radio?


NMEA 2000 Yacht Yamaha Engine Interface Cable



While recreational boats under 65.5 feet in length are not required to use a very high frequency (VHF) marine radio, instant communication between your boat and other boats, docks, bridges and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) is possible. It is the primary means of communication in coastal waters and has many features that make it superior to cell phones, CB radios, or other means of communication. Most VHF marine radios also have instant access to NOAA weather forecasts 24 hours a day.



If I have a radio, do I have to listen to it all the time?


If you turn on the radio, you must keep an eye on VHF channel 16. In USCG Zone I waters (northern New Jersey to Canada), emergency marine information broadcasts (such as storm warnings) are issued on Channel 16.
