Re: Nuclear s(n)ubs

They have VHF, its handheld and the guy holding it has way more to do than chit chat and the other stuff is far more important. Subs are made to be operated underwater vs on the surface as such surface operations are rarer and hence demand way more attention/personnel than normal submerged operations do. That said if memory serves the VHF is normally not on 16 its some other channel with the coasties I think (I was enlisted not an officer so never the guy with the radio and virtually never one of the guys on the bridge).
