Talking of training and bits of paper just seen that Steve Curtis had to take his level 2 for the Southampton Boat show - obviously his years of experience means absolutely nothing!

Fair enough , radios on a loop are Ok. but that still involves some form of equipment expediture and actual hands on experience for the student or I don't care if you make your own simulators by the way. I know of courses where the instuctors have turned up with no kit (other than a portable PC) and have had the students speaking into their hands to simulate a microphone including pressing the vitual PTT button with your actual thumb

That sounds pretty poor - I didn't imagine this kind of thing could happen! My course used radios on a loop and I thought that was great 'cos it was so realistic. Incidentally, I believe they are one of only a handful (at most) of buildings to hold a ship's radio licence.

No they were real radios - Simrads. We talked into them and listened to them just like in real life. The only difference is that the co-ax joins them all together so they don't transmit externally.
