ISSA VHF Student Textbook


On this important Safety Course we teach students to use a vhf radio to transmit a Mayday, make Urgency Calls, act as a Mayday Relay and learn and understand radio protocol and the use of the radio procedure. We teach you about Search and Rescue protocol and your obligations and imperatives when responding to distress or urgency calls.
