Marine VHF Radio Handbook free pdf This handbook is intended to cover the fundamental and advanced skills of marine VHF radio communications in a clear, readable and thorough manner. The "Marine VHF Radio Handbook" is a comprehensive guide for users of VHF sets now participating in the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS), using VHF radio on large SOLAS vessels as well as on board of small craft and pleasure boats. The book incorporates recent revisions to the distress, urgency and safety procedures to be used by Digital Selective Calling (DSC) and by radiotelephony (voice) messages. By complying with the latest procedures and protocols of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and technical specifications of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the book provides a valuable source of reference and will be particularly useful to those who use maritime radio communication systems both ashore and afloat. Anyone with a marine VHF radio aboard must have an Operator's Certificate and this handbook contains all the information required to pass the examinations or to brush up on procedures. This handbook is a practical guide to select, install and use marine radio equipment onboard. A companion product, "The Marine VHF Radio Simulator" from the same author, allows unlimited practice in generating and handling every type of VHF calls, with no risk of false alerts.
