Publish Radiotelephone Handbook For Mariners

A new 104-page handbook to aid in the proper use of marine radiotelephones has been published by the Radio Technical Commission for Marine Services.

E n t i t l e d "Marine Radiotelephone Users Handbook," the easyto- understand book was produced primarily for the new marine radiotelephone owner, although it contains valuable reference information for all marine radio users.

Included are sections on obtaining radiotelephone licenses, installation instructions, selecting and using the correct channels for VHF FM, single-sideband radios for long-range communications, routine and emergency operating procedures with sample scenarios for ordinary and distress calls, and procedures to place a call to or from a vessel underway.

The book costs $5 and is available from marine electronics and boat equipment dealers. Quantity discounts are available for dealers and for group purchases from RTCM, c oF.C.C., P.O. Box 19087, Washington, D.C. 20036
