sailingdog MLS-

If a boat is communicating with FOREIGN stations, whether foreign ships or foreign ground stations, an RRO is required, as is a SSL.

I would be surprised if the US doesn't have similar legislation.
While not required in US airspace, I went to the trouble of obtaining a Restricted Radio Operators License for myself and a Station License for my aircraft, should I ever decided to fly to the Great White North.

I suppose similar rules might apply for US Documented vessels as for US registered aircraft, but couldn't say for sure.

Years ago my Dad asked me to take my great aunt to the Dr's. for her check up. She had been hard of hearing for years. You had to shout at her so she could hear you.

In the Dr's office, the Dr. finally got frustrated shouting at her and said sweetheart you need hearing aids. She said DR. I am 91 years old and I have heard enough. LOL

We used to.

When everyone discovered it was a Government money-making scheme and wasn't making boating more safe it was done away with.

There's a little bit of Freedom that once again is free!!
