ORCV Practical, hands-on marine radio workshop (SOLD OUT)
AboutAll sailors, skipper and crew, should be confident in their ability to operate the radio equipment on any boat. You never know when you may be called upon to issue an important distress call or coordinate radio communication while your skipper comes to the aid of another vessel. While obtaining your Marine Radio Operators Certificate of Proficiency is a very important first step it does not provide the practical experience required to deal with routine radio communications, position reporting skeds, communication with limited coast stations, distress traffic and using the local VHF repeater network. General confidence in using a microphone can take some time to acquire. The ORCV has developed this hands-on workshop to provide new skippers and crew with the opportunity to gain the experience required to operate marine radios with confidence.
