Logging In





 

What?

Whether you're on an extended voyage or just out for a day's fishing, it's a good idea to periodically advise Tas Maritime Radio of your location and intentions. Please advise when you have returned to your mooring or marina and closing, that way we know you are safe and sound.

Why?

If you fail to turn up our log will provide an indication of when and where you were last heard from. We often receive phone calls from family and friends asking after a particular vessel.

When?

The TMR radio room is manned from 0700 until 1900 every day of the year. We broadcast 3 skeds each day. At the completion of the weather vessels are invited to call in to provide position reports. You don't have to wait for a sked though: you can call in any time between 0700 and 1900 hours.

How?

On VHF channel 16 from all coastal areas.

On HF frequencies 2524, 4125, 6215 or 8291 kHz for offshore areas up to 500nm away.

You may phone us on (61) 03 6231 2276 from your Mobile or Satphone.

On ocean voyages, if you have Internet on your vessel, consider sending an email to us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
