Description: Communications Afloat is the first compact, comprehensive guide to sending and receiving messages on the water. Elbert S. Maloney, one of the nautical world's best-known authorities and a specialist in this field, surveys the entire spectrum of boating communication including: VHS, single sideband, CB and ham radios, cellular telephones, intercoms, and SATCOM.
The advantages and limitations of each system are weighed with information and advice on selection, operation, installation, and maintenance. Equally important, the many back-up forms of non-electronic communication are covered along with standard hand signals for towing and water-skiing, sound signals for operation in fog, morse code, light signals, and the proper use of signal flags. All are explained clearly and concisely and are laid out for quick and easy reference.
Knowing the right kind of communication for every situation is a must for safe boating, and this book is the definitive source.
