In the second half of the video, BOATING Electronics Editor Jim Hendricks speaks to the importance of monitoring VHF channel 16 (156.800 MHz) while out on the water. He also addresses protocols for speaking over 16, and when to switch to another channel. These procedures are made all the easier, if your radio offers easy-to-use features like Dual-Watch and Tri-Watch as does the Icom M94D handheld VHF used in this video.
