A marine VHF radio refers to a ‘very high frequency’ range between 156 and 174 MHz. It is most commonly installed in watercraft. The radio is used for a variety of purposes, including direct contact to rescue services like the Coast Guard and towing companies, as well as harbor, bridge, and marina communication. It provides a two-way communication system within a 5 to 30-mile range, proving to be far more reliable than a cell phone.
