Port Ludlow Marina and Resort recently installed an automated VHF radio check system.
To use the system, tune your VHF radio to channel 28 and make a test call. The automated system will record the call you make and play it back, allowing you to hear the quality of your transmission.
Boaters should check their VHF equipment regularly. For boaters in the San Juan Islands, Steve Roberts hosts a automated VHF radio system in Friday Harbor.
