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.
