Ship’s Radio or Ship Portable Radio
Ships’ radio is used for the safe navigation of vessels and for making distress calls in emergency situations. It enables communication with coast stations, port/harbor authorities and with other vessels.
Ships radio can include MF (medium frequency), VHF (very high frequency), HF (high frequency), and UHF (ultra high frequency) radio equipment. It can also include satellite communications equipment, radar equipment, Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRBs) and Search and Rescue Transponders (SARTs).
Amateur radio, sometimes known as ham radio, is both a hobby and a service that uses various types of radio equipment allowing communication with other radio amateurs for the purpose of self-training, recreation, and public service.
Business Radio refers to radio systems used to support business needs, including Private/Professional Mobile Radio (PMR), Public Access Mobile Radio and pages. Business Radio systems can use either analog or digital technologies, and typically enable two-way speech or data communications between fixed (base stations) and mobile/hand-portable radios.
Aeronautical radio licensing covers aircraft radio licenses, aeronautical ground station licenses, and navigation aids. The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) is responsible for managing aeronautical radio licenses, spectrum assignments, and allocation.
