Distress Monitoring


Tas Maritime Radio is manned by our volunteer radio operators between 0700 and 1900 every day of the year.

We monitor the following Distress and Calling channels(VHF) and frequencies (HF) from 0700 to 1900 hours.

  … VHF channel 16;
  … HF frequency 4125 kHz;
  … HF frequency 6215 kHz;
  … HF frequency 8291 kHz.
We also monitor HF frequency 2524 kHz (not a formal calling/distress frequency);


At 1900 each evening we hand control of the TMR network to Golden Electronics Security who monitor VHF channel 16 for urgent and emergency calls to Tas Maritime until 0700 the next morning.
