2.0 out of 5 stars Very short book!
If you read very slowly it may take 20 mins. Does not even give the radio alphabet!. What it says is useful but mostly logical. Worth even 1.50? No....ultimately one is paying for an advertisements other products. Better to buy a proper course that you will need to do anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Good Useful Guide, 12 Nov 2013

This review is from: Using VHF Radio: The Boat Owner's 20-Minute Guide (Kindle Edition)
This is a very useful guide for anyone new to radio communication on yachts and other small craft. Its tightly focussed pages introduce the main uses and limitations of marine VHF radio; operation of the standard controls; and voice message procedures in routine and distress situations.

The book explains the Ship Radio Licence and VHF Short Range Certificate
- the two types of licence you must hold to use marine VHF safely and legally - plus where and how to obtain them.

You are then provided with links to a range of free and paid-for resources to help you learn and test your knowledge in preparation for the essential SRC exam. The information is absolutely up-to-date, even detailing the new requirements coming into force in January 2014.

I recommend this low-cost, no nonsense Guide, which will get you started very quickly and help you towards safe and proficient use of VHF radio on boats.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to ship's radio, 28 Oct 2013

This review is from: Using VHF Radio: The Boat Owner's 20-Minute Guide (Kindle Edition)
This short guide is from an acknowledged expert in software for training practical leisure sailors.

It provides just the right amount of information to whet one's appetite for learning how to safely use modern radiotelephone equipment on small craft.

Clearly no short guide can teach one to the standard needed to obtain an operator's licence but it provides both the necessary background and also links to how to obtain both formal training and software to practice at home.
