As of 31 December 2021 the Marine Rescue Hervey Bay (MRHB) Radio Room will no longer monitor the 27 MHz channels 88 and 91. In this region the prime means of radio communication for recreational boats is via VHF radios.

Please note that MRHB will continue to monitor VHF channels 16; 22; 67; and 73 from 0600 to 1800 seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Marine radios are essential safety equipment and can be the only way to:

  • communicate with other boats or marine rescue groups
  • receive navigational warnings and weather updates.
