One of the most important marine accessories boaters can keep aboard is a VHF marine radio. Whether it is a built-in model, or a handheld radio, like the one used to illustrate the tips provided in this episode, a VHF radio provides safety and convenience beyond that which can be provided by a cellular phone.
