Radio / VHF transmissions

Repeater channel 61 is the standard calling frequency for VHF transmissions between craft and coastguard radio.

After contact with other craft on channel 61, for chat use line-of-sight channels 6 or 8.

For long distance use repeater channel 63.

If you don't receive a response, change back to channel 61.

In an emergency, call 111 for Police assistance.
