New emergency Marine radio service

With warmer weather many scouts and their families are heading out on the water in boats.

Marine safety in Victorian coastal waters has received a major boost with the launch of Marine Radio Victoria, the new marine distress and emergency monitoring service.

Marine Radio Victoria (MRV) monitors and records radio traffic on VHF and HF emergency radio channels 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.
