Marine Rescue Broken Bay can help you with obtaining a VHF licence. It is an inexpensive exercise, especially if you help yourself. Click on “Office of Maritime Communications.”

From here you can view the Marine Radio Operators Handbook on-line or order one, costs are shown here then click the AMC Handbooks menu item to order your selected manual. Repeat the on-line revision questions as many times as you need to become proficient, then contact our Radio Base on 9999 3554. Provide your contact details and advise us that you are ready to sit the VHF licence exam.

We will obtain the exam, arrange a mutually convenient time & date then invigilate the exam for you.

Currently the cost of the exam and perpetual licence (no annual fee) is $80, payable to AMC. In the interests of boating safety, Marine Rescue Broken Bay does not charge for this service, however a donation would be most welcome.

From time to time we run radio familiarisation courses to help boat users gain confidence about logging on/off and the correct useof marine emergency procedures.
