Marine Radio License

No fishing report this weekend from myself or Dion. We were too busy studying hard to obtain our license to operate a VHF radio. Not to many people seem to realise, but it is actually ILLEGAL to operate a VHF marine radio without first obtaining such a license. But I am happy to report that the course was not too stressful!

Dion advertised a few weeks ago for anyone who would like to sit the course to contact him. We ended up with about 13 people attend the two day workshop, and we sat the examination late today. Fingers crossed we will all pass.

Big thanks to Dion for organising the event, and an even bigger thanks to John (JJ) from the Townsville Coast Guard to guiding us through the course.
