Its only a list but it may help:

http://www.ukseakayakguidebook.co.uk...f_channels.htm

Basically Ch16 is a calling and distress channel. Its used to call other boats and the CG. Transmission should be no longer than a minute ideally.

Ch67 is what the CG usually transfer you to to pass information, ie your passage plan etc.

Where I am the fisherman use ch10, 13 and 69 although its not the place to pick up good radio procedure. The CG don't seem bothered about the radio procedure as if they didn't use these channel they'd only use a different one.

Will I get slated for saying even if you dont have the right bits of paper - if in doubt take a radio with you as in emergency / distress you are better off calling a Mayday/ Pan on ch16 than not calling & getting into who knows how much trouble.

Buy a 'how to use a marine VHF book' for a few quid & learn the basics, take the thing with you, have it turned on , but dont use it unless you NEED to until you have done course etc.

I had to tow someone in yesterday night who had called 999 on his mobile from his 1 day old boat when it stopped working - the CG was keen to have a 'chat' with him when I got back in with him !

Infact if an 'emergency' I 'think' you are exmpt from needed the SRC ? Anyone advise ?

Guys thanks, You have given me the information I require, I have every intention of doing the course ASAP BUT I have a radio on my newly aquired rib do not intend to use it until after the course but should the need have arisen I would have not known what channel to attempt to use or listen to - merley a case of 'Belts & Braces' the thing is sat there anyway.

Doesn't matter. Being illegal and prosecuted is still better than being dead.

Jetski - do you have a ships radio license? If not you need to get one from Ofcom - http://www.ofcom.org.uk/licensing/olc/

Also, if you have a DSC VHF you won't be able to make use of it until you have an MMSI number issued as part of the ships license.
