Handheld VHF two-way communication is a means of rescue equipment and provides on-scene communication between survival craft and rescue vessels.It can also be used to work on a ship at the corresponding frequencies.Operational requirements for VHF - radio stations detailed in IMO Resolution A.605 (15) of 19 November 1987,according to which, on board any passenger ship (more than 12 passengers) must be at least three VHF radios;on a cargo ship with a gross tonnage of 300 to 500 reg. t - 2 and 500 register tons or more - 3 radio,which are installed in a place where they can be quickly transferred to the lifeboat or raft.In the ship's muster list must be specified is responsible for removal of FM stations to the life-saving appliances.The transceiver provides operation at the frequency 156.8 MHz (channel 16) and at least one additional simplex channel G3E emission class. "GMDSS" shall be marked on the station housing.
