VHF Signal Booster (Steering Flat)


The officers on this Member ship decided it would be prudent to install a VHF radio signal booster in the steering flat of the ship so that handheld VHF units can effectively be used in the space in the event of an emergency where emergency steering is required.

Although it is a requirement for ships to have a phone in the steering flat for this purpose, it is common practice for handheld radios to be used by various parties for communication in an emergency.
