Radiocommunication devices are one of the fundamental supports of maritime safety. Since the end of the 19th century this technology has been used to safeguard life at sea, hence its importance is not only for our safety but also for third parties. If all mariners are aware of how communications and GMDSS works, the error margins are reduced when making a rescue or assisting a crew in distress.
Our expectations before setting sail are always to have a good time and enjoy the sea. In order to do that, being prepared to face any possible eventualities that may arise is crucial to avoid placing ourselves and others in a dangerous situation.
