The present handbook was released by the Australian Maritime College with the intention to provide necessary guidance of radio operators on Australian ships which are compulsorily or voluntarily titled with marine radiotelephony, marine radiotelephony with DSC capability, and/or Inmarsat communications, as per the State or Territory government legislation or at Limited Coast Stations, in particular those operated by marine rescue organisations. We recommend this book for candidates who are going to undertake examination for the Marine Radio Operators Certificate of Proficiency (MROCP) and the Marine Radio Operators VHF Certificate of Proficiency (MROVCP).
