This is the informative handbook with the content initially aimed to serve as the accessible practical guide for use by the shipboard radio operators as well as shore-based radio stations, particularly operators of the VHF and SSB, i.e. MF/HF radios. It will provide all readers with the required technical info about the radiotelephony procedures, coverage and appropriate use of the cell phones, terms and contacts, and how exactly SAR is being managed in New Zealand.
The information presented in the handbook has been arranged in five major chapters. The first one has been dedicated solely to the radiotelephony procedures including prowords, i.e. procedural words, VHF channels, SSB frequencies, silence period etc., while the second one addresses the coverage and services including broadcasts and warnings, medical advice, sat safety services etc.
The third chapter provides other important information including the medical evacuation, working with choppers, transmissions in harbor, testing the radios, sea rescue by choppers etc. Two remaining chapters of this handbook are providing the useful contacts plus contain a small yet comprehensive Glossary of the terms used in this handbook and generally in the industry.
