Marine Operator

Channels 24 through 28 are marine operator allocated. I have never used one but I think you can use a phone calling card if you do not have an account. Maybe a collect call?

I don't think you would want to broadcast a calling card number or credit card number to the world. Not these days!

You are realistically only going to have line of sight communication with your VHF anyway. The best bet would be to try for any boat near you for help or to relay a call, either by VHF or cellular.

I think you will find most anyone willing to help. I carry a harness for hooking up to take a boat in tow, and I have read a lot of posts about boats that are prepared to help others.


Edit, I forgot about the upper frequency channels ....Thanks Benswa.
