VHF Training

I need to find a VHF training centre in the north west & be nice if they have training in the next 2 weeks or so - (Rochdale would be v-nice)

Anyone know of any good places?

Have a look at the RYA website, it tells you were all the training centres are.

RYA web site...

Although it's irritatingly slow, they do training centres by region which is helpful.

Check out Dave Mallett's Wavelength Training www.wavelengthtraining.co.uk if Blackpool is near enough.

How about a trip......

....to Abersoch, N.W where Jono Gorton is based (Phwheli actually) with Professional Powerboat Training. He has a cracking school, is a real decent fella and offers a decent deal £$£$........ I may even join you and I bet we could get one or two others involved as well whilst mixing in a bit of ribbing.

Listen to VHF

Maybe a stupid question.... but I know that you have to have your qualification to use a VHF radio, but can you listen to one without your qualification?

No, you only need the Licence to carry one (fixed or handheld), but beggs the question Whats the point? you may just as well "GO the whole Hog" and get the certification and use the radio for two way communication.

Yes, you can listen, and you can make distress (only) calls.

Agree with above, however you still need a licence on the boat to carry the radio, even if your only listining, this is a different licence to the Certificate of competance.

You can also use M (37a) & M2 without an SRC of old VHF ticket.
Hopefully the charter boat will have a licence for a fitted radio, which will alow you to listen only to other channels. Check that there is a "Tax disk" showing outboard on the port side and it is in date.
