    Marine Radio-gctid404052

    What channel is everyone listening to, I usually am on Lake Simcoe here in Ontario and was just wondering if anyone was out there listening on any particular channel.

    the main channel here in the States is 16... but when you hail someone you need to go to a different channel that isnt an emergency Coast Guard one and tell them to go up or down to that special one you want. Your area should have a list of certain ones in Canada that hail on that arent emergency response

      16 is the call channel...6, 68, 69, 71 some of the working channels

      You should get your license as it could cost you if you don't.

      Unfortunately the government, in a very stupid moment, handed over licensing to a social club (power squadron), to administer, so you have to pay them to get it.

      They will pressure the hell out of you to join but personally, I suggest you stick to joining boating clubs.

        I monitor Channel 16 on Lake Simcoe. Spend most of my time on Kempenfelt Bay as I am out of the Barrie Marina but we do make runs up to Orillia and down to Cook's Bay as well. Where abouts on Simcoe are you?

          I heard about this license thing several times now. I just went to the FCC website:

          "You do not need a license to operate a marine VHF radio, radar, or EPIRBs aboard voluntary ships operating domestically. The term "voluntary ships" refers to ships that are not required by law to carry a radio. Generally, this term applies to recreation or pleasure craft."

          What gives?

            For one thing he is Canadian so FCC is not applicable. Here is the link to Transport Canada If he does not travel in international waters he does not need one. We Canucks here on the Left Coast do.

              That is in the US. In Canada you need an operator's license and if you leave the country a station license.
