We have helped with many incidents over the years, ranging from no fuel to the more serious Pan-Pans and Maydays.
Without members this voluntary organisation would cease to exist, leaving Tasmania without a marine communication service.
Tas Maritime Radio now has a safety camera allowing us to monitor the transit of vessels & sea conditions in the Marion Bay Narrows.
I purchased a Fisher 32 Motor Sailer in Hobart back in November and left it in Hobart and commuted several times between Melbourne and Hobart to enjoy the beautiful sailing waters you have around Hobart / Tasmania and then sailed ( actually motored all the way - weather !!!! ) back to Melbourne.I was not able to sail and see as much as I would have liked due to weather but what I did do was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I joined Tasmaritime Radio when I was told about the coverage you provide especially in my case sailing back to Melbourne and it proved to be money well spent. I wish to express my admiration and appreciation for the fantastic Radio Network you have and especially the volunteer radio operators who man the radio with their professional and helpful manner in conducting the Radio Skeds and Log ins. I am very thankful for your assistance while sailing in your waters. I just wish that here in Victoria we had a system that is as good as your Radio Network. Good luck for the future.
