SAMSA Marine Notice no 6 of 2015 – Replacement of 29Mhz with VHF

This must be done for boats surveyed after 1st January 2016. We can continue to use our 29Mhz radios as voluntary equipment for intership communications, communications with clubs, licenced launch sites etc. However these 29Mhz radios will no longer be appropriate to fulfill safety requirements (eg MAYDAY)

Please make sure that your VHF radio has DSC capability because this will be necessary from April 2018 onwards
