Re: The bottom line on Ham radio

Station license goes with the boat/airplane.
Radiotelephone operators permit goes with the person.
I can't say anyone ever looked for any of these things in all the times I have been to the Bahamas and Bermuda, but that is a small sample size.
Speaking of the Bahamas, I was impressed by their good mannered sharing of radio spectrum. They use marine VHF for *everything* and no one gets on the taxi channel to explain why some regulation means it isn't really for taxis and they can very well read War and Peace on it if they want to.
