Jetskitas.com (Tasmanian Jet Sports Boating Club) has had a great opportunity to get to know the guys at Tas Maritime Radio (TMR). This is a great group run by volunteers with the sole purpose of increasing our safety whilst on the water.
TMR is a radio monitoring service that provides safety services for Tasmanian mariners.
These services include:
Providing a listening watch on VHF and HF distress and calling channels;
Providing routine scheduled information (skeds) over VHF and HF frequencies;
Providing coastal waters forecasts at sked times or on demand;
Providing Notices to Mariners and maritime safety information;
Logging vessel movements;
Providing automated weather broadcast for southeastern Tasmania;
Providing rescue coordination.
This service is made possible through the support of an amazing crew of volunteers and the generosity and vision of those who support them.
