Notes

  • This frequency list ony applies to radios designed for UK use.
    • Non UK radios tend to share most but not all the channels.
    • Non UK radios may treat some UK duplex channels as simplex
    • Use of some channels e.g. M and M2 is prohibited in many other countries
      • Channel 2006 (160.900 MHz) is not included because it can only be used for MSI broadcasts and it is not available on most marine radios.
      • Channels 1078, 2078, 1019, 2019, 1079,2089, 1020 and 2020 are not included in this list because
        • The use of these channels is very strictly restricted for very specialist purposes by approved organisations
        • You will not find any of these channels on a normal UK ships radio
        • All the channels share frequencies with other channels in the main list - there use is likely to cause interference!
        • Channels 1078, 1019, 1079 and 1020 are simplex using the transmit frequencies from channels 78, 19, 79 and 20
        • Channels 2078, 2019, 2079 and 2020 are simplex using the recieve frequencies from channels 78, 19, 79 and 20
      • Normal use of Marine VHF frequencies is only permitted when on board ship
      • Channels are assigned for specific purposes and radio operators should know which channels are available for any purpose
