TRVMRG–Radio Operator

Part of my training to become a Competent Crew Member at the Two Rocks Volunteer Marine Rescue is to hold a Marine Radio Operator's Certificate of Proficiency (MROCP). This enables me to man the radios at the rescue base, logging in recreational fishing boats, providing weather and navigational information and answering any distress calls.
The course covers MF/HF and VHF  to vessels operating in Australian waters and radiotelephony equipment with digital selective calling (DSC) facilities, and emergency position indicating radio beacons of the 406 MHz and 121.5/243 MHz type).
I sat the exam today and results will be back in a couple of weeks.
