Wednesday/Thursday, February 20/21, 2019 8:00pm EDT
Registration fee: $40 members, $50 non-members
Are you going offshore, beyond the range of VHF radio and cell phone coverage? Then you definitely need a High-Frequency, Single Side Band (HF SSB) radio for safety and comfort. An HF SSB DSC emergency call is the only technology that can let all the vessels around you know you are in trouble in an emergency, for the fastest possible assistance. HF SSB can be intimidating to the first-time user, but in this 2-part webinar, Terry shows you simple step-by-step procedures that anyone can follow to use Icom’s IC-M802 HF SSB radio. Pictures and charts help simplify the steps, so even if you cannot program a VCR/DVR or master your smart phone, this course will make you an Icom M802 pro.
