Whether you are a water sports enthusiast, a sailing club or anything to do with marine radio use, this helpful guide can help prolong the life of your radio and cut down on repair costs.

This handy guide is available to download on the side of this page so you can print it off for personal or professional use. Alternatively, you can email to request a laminated copy so that you can hang this in your club or business.
