Brierley - Answered a Question by Mayo (14 Jan 09 16:00)

I was on Aurora last November, and this topic was raised whilst on board. The answer was that Aurora does not have a "Radio Room", and hence does not have a dedicated radio officer. This is all down to the high level of modern satellite communications.

Mayo - replied to Brierley (15 Jan 09 05:58)

Hello, And many thanks for the the e-mail reply, my reason for asking was simply that I am a licensed radio amateur and we are booked for a cruise in August this year and I intend to take with me a small 2 metre and 70 cm transceiver, (144Mhz-435Mhz) and work through one or two local repeaters while we are docked in the various ports of call. A radio officer would appreciate exactly what I intend to do and would be aware that all my calls are logged and that there is not the slightest possibility of my causing RF problems while on board the vessel. I have held a amateur radio licence for over thirty years, I have not however had the opportunity to operate maritime mobile in all that time, an entry in my log book to that effect would be something special. Again my thanks for your reply. Sincerely. George Mayo, G4EUF.
