Welcome to New Zealand Search and Rescue

The New Zealand Search and Rescue (NZSAR) Council has a mandate from the NZ government to provide strategic leadership to the New Zealand Search and Rescue Sector.

We help improve the overall co-ordination, cohesion, capability and leadership of search and rescue by working alongside the key organisations and individuals providing search and rescue services throughout New Zealand.

Changes to the Maritime Mobile Repeater allocations 

From 1 October 2016, there will be changes to the maritime mobile repeater allocations as part of making space for newly allocated international services for ship tracking and data services. The changes involve moving a few private VHF repeater services, most Coastguard VHF repeater services and NowCasting weather services.

There will be no changes to Maritime Channel 16 for emergency distress calling and there will be no need to buy a new radio.

For more information, please visit the Radio Spectrum Management website here.
