Traffico radio mobile marittimo su frequenze radioamatoriali

Anche nell’era dei satelliti, la radio rimane ancora un mezzo molto efficace per la comunicazione in mare, grazie alle frequenze in onde corte (HF), con l’SSB marina e le bande radioamatoriali utilizzate nel lungo raggio e le comunicazioni in VHF per il contatto fino a circa 20 miglia.

Nelle onde corte esistono “Reti” radio marittime (“net”) in tutto il mondo, organizzate per gestire e coordinare il traffico proveniente in particolare da imbarcazioni a vela. Per queste imbarcazioni è importante conoscere le frequenze radio di queste reti e i loro orari, in modo da passare il traffico di messaggi, le posizioni, ricevere informazioni meteo e altro ancora…
