Did you know...
Under federal regulations, you need an operating certificate to use a VHF and HF radio:
• The Marine Radio Short Range Operator’s VHF Certificate of Proficiency (SROCP) is for VHF radio and is the normal certificate for recreational boaters.
• The Marine Radio Operator’s Long Range Certificate of Proficiency (LROCP) is for VHF and MF/HF radio.
A number of Coast Guard Flotillas across the country run either an LROCP or SROCP course frequently throughout the year (dependent on numbers).
These courses are a great way to obtain your LROCP License while supporting your local Coast Guard Flotilla.
