The Marine Radio Operators Handbook is intended for the guidance of radio operators:

  • On Australian vessels which are compulsorily fitted with marine radiotelephony, marine radiotelephony with digital selective calling capability, and/or Inmarsat satellite communications, in accordance with State or Territory government legislation; or
  • On Australian vessels which are voluntarily fitted with marine radiotelephony, marine radiotelephony with digital selective calling capability, and/or INMARSAT communications; or
    At limited coast stations, particularly those operated by marine rescue organisations.
  • It is the recommended textbook for candidates undertaking examination for the Marine Radio Operators Certificate of Proficiency (MROCP), the Marine Radio Operators VHF Certificate of Proficiency (MROVCP), and the Marine Satellite Communications Endorsement.

Procedures and requirements outlined in the handbook are based on the International Radio Regulations formulated by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), on provisions governing the use of radio transmitters in Australia laid down in the Radio communications Act 1992, and on radio communications station licence conditions set by Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).

Careful observance of the procedures covered by this handbook is essential for the efficient exchange of communications in the marine radio communications service, particularly when the safety of life at sea is concerned.  Special attention should be given to those sections dealing with distress, urgency and safety.
