The most popular method of communicating with other boats is via very high frequency (VHF) radio.
To ensure that maritime users do not cause interference for other radio users, a part of the radio spectrum has been allocated specifically to this group and to make operation as simple as possible frequencies have been put into numbered channels. For example, Channel 16. Radio does not recognise geographic or political boundaries, and to ensure that boats travelling on international voyages can always communicate, the VHF marine band is the same all around the world. There are 55 international marine channels, a similar number of private channels (allocated on a local basis to commercial organisations) and some other unique national channels.
To make sure that your radio is fitted with the correct local channels, be sure to purchase type-approved equipment in the country of intended use.
