According to United States Coast Guard and FCC guidelines, shipboard VHF radios on commercial vessels must be inspected and certified once every five years when sailing on domestic voyages and once every 12 months when sailing on international voyages.

As a FCC Certified and Licensed Technician, I will visit your vessel, inspect your full VHF radio installation and issue the appropriate certificate to assure the vessel is in full compliance.

FCC 824: COMMUNICATIONS ACT SAFETY RADIOTELEPHONY CERTIFICATE
When a single VHF radio is provided for communications, the FCC 824 is the applicable certificate. Vessels which carry more than 6 passengers for hire, such as harbor cruises, sports fishing trips, dive trips, dolphin watching, and dinner cruises are all included in this group.

FCC 827: VESSEL BRIDGE-TO-BRIDGE RADIOTELEPHONY CERTIFICATE
When a second VHF radio is carried aboard for the purpose of compliance with the Vessel Bride-to-Bridge Radiotelephone Act, this is the applicable certificate. An example would be an excursion vessel, towing vessel, pilot vessel, water taxi or any vessel more than 20 meters in length that regularly navigates a harbor area where VHF Channel 13 is regularly monitored.
