How Your CobraMarine VHF Radio Works
DISTRESS
DISTRESS
Antenna
This radio is a battery-powered portable transceiver for use afloat. It gives you
two-way vessel-to-vessel and vessel-to-shore station communications, primarily
for safety and secondarily for navigation and operational purposes. With it, you
can call for help, get information from other boaters, talk to lock or bridge tenders,
and make radiotelephone calls to anywhere in the world through a marine operator.
Battery
Besides two-way communications, the radio can provide quick access to receive
all the NOAA (National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration) weather channels
and alert you to weather emergencies with a tone on a weather channel you can tune in
for your area.
Global Positioning Sytem (GPS)
Your Cobra Marine radio includes a built-in GPS receiver. Your position will be continuously
indicated on the LCD and, most importantly, it will be included automatically with any DSC
Distress message you may need to send. That will take the “search” out of “search and
rescue”.

Introduction
•
The frequencies your radio uses are set aside to enhance safety afloat and for vessel
navigation and operational messages over a range suitable for nearshore voyages.
If the 6 watt maximum output of your radio is not sufficient for the distances you travel from
the coast, consider installing a Cobra Marine fixed mount radio with up to 25 watts of
output power. (Visit www.cobra.com or your local dealer for model availability.)
If traveling far offshore, you should consider adding even more powerful radio equipment
such as HF single side band or satellite radio for your vessel.
The U.S. Coast Guard does not endorse cellular telephones as substitutes for marine
radios. They generally cannot communicate with rescue vessels and, if you make
a distress call on a cellular telephone, only the party you call will be able to hear you.
Additionally, cellular telephones may have limited coverage over water and
can be hard to locate. If you do not know where you are, the Coast Guard will have difficulty
finding you if you are using a cellular telephone.
However, cellular telephones can have a place on board where cellular coverage
is available — to allow social conversations and keep the marine frequencies
uncluttered and available for their intended uses.
•
CobraMarine VHF radios comply with the FCC (Federal Communications Commission)
requirements that regulate the Maritime Radio Service.
This CobraMarine radio incorporates a VHF FM transceiver designed for use in the frequency
range of 156.025 to 163.275 MHz. It has a switchable RF output power of one (1), three (3)
or six (6) watts.
The transceiver is capable of Class-D (Digital Selective Calling) operation in accordance with
CFR Part 47, Section 80,225.
The radio operates on all currently allocated marine channels and is switchable for use
according to U.S.A., International or Canadian regulations. It features instant access to
emergency Channel 16 and calling Channel 9 as well as NOAA (National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration) All Hazards Radio with Alert.
Station License
An FCC ship station license is no longer required for any vessel traveling in U.S.A. waters which
uses a VHF marine radio, RADAR, or EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon), and
which is not required to carry radio equipment. However, any vessel required to carry a marine
radio on an international voyage, carrying an HF single side band radiotelephone, or carrying a
marine satellite terminal must obtain a station license.
FCC license forms and applications for ship and land stations can be downloaded through the
Internet at www.fcc.gov. Forms can also be obtained by calling the FCC at 888-225-5322.
International Station License
If your vessel will be entering the sovereign waters of a country other than the U.S.A. or Canada,
you should contact that country’s communications regulatory authority for licensing information.
Radio Call Sign
Currently, the FCC does not require recreational boaters to have a license. The United States
Coast Guard recommends that the boat’s registration number and state of registry (e.g., IL 1234
AB) be used as a call sign and be clearly visible on the vessel.

Can I use a standard Bluetooth® headset with this radio?
No, the radio is using the headset profile of the Bluetooth specification to pair with your
mobile phone. It cannot pair to another Bluetooth headset.
Can I use this unit as a speakerphone or hands-free device?
Turning on VOX allows you to use the radio without pressing the PTT
(Push to Talk) button. The radio will still need to be operated in a face held position with
the microphone close to the mouth. This radio uses a noise canceling microphone, and it
will not operate well from the belt clip or another hands-free position.

Please make sure to note your VOX setting.
If VOX is set to On, then the receiving caller might hear conversation and noise in your
background. This setting is retained in memory. If switched On, then it will
be On the next time the radio is switched On and connected.
Should I use my mobile phone for emergency situations on the water?
No, Cobra does not endorse cellular telephones as a substitute for marine radios. They
generally cannot communicate with rescue vessels and, if you make a distress call on your
cellular telephone, only the party you call will be able to hear you.
Additionally, cellular telephones may have limited coverage over water. If you do not
know where you are, the Coast Guard will have difficulty finding you if you
are using your cellular telephone. However, cellular telephones can have a place
onboard where cellular coverage is available – to allow social conversations and keep
the marine frequencies uncluttered and available for their intended use.

Calling Coast Stations
Call a coast station on its assigned channel. You may use Channel 16 when you
do not know the assigned channel.
Calling Other Vessels
Call other vessels on Channel 16 or on Channel 9. (Channel 9 is preferred for recreational
vessel use.) You may also call on ship-to-ship channels when you know that the vessel is
listening on a ship-to-ship channel.
Initial Calling on Channel 16 or 9
The use of Channel 16 is permitted for making initial contact (hailing) another vessel. The
limits on calling must be followed. Be reminded, Channel 16’s most important function is
for Emergency Messages. If for some reason, Channel 16 is congested, the use of Channel
9, especially in U.S. waters, may be used as the initial contact (hailing) channel for nonemergency communication.
Limits on Calling
You must not call the same station for more than 30 seconds at a time.
If you do not get a reply, wait at least two (2) minutes before calling again.
After three (3) calling periods, wait at least 15 minutes before calling again.
Change Channels
After contacting another station on a calling channel, change immediately
to a channel which is available for the type of message you want to send.
Station Identification
Identify, in English, your station by your FCC call sign (if available), vessel name and the
state registration number, at both the beginning and at the end of the message.

Corsair: “Vagabond go to working Channel 68. Over.”
Both parties switch over to the agreed upon working channel...
Corsair: “Vagabond I need to talk to you about... Over.”
Vagabond: “Corsair in answer to your question about... Over.”

Digital selective calling is a semi-automated system for establishing a radio call. It
has been designed by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) as an international
standard for VHF,
MF, andCustomer
HF calls and is part of the Global Maritime Distress and
Installation
Safety System (GMDSS). Assistance
Main
Icons
Digital selective calling — DSC — employs digital RF signals which tend to
carry
further and be less susceptible to distortion from noise and atmospheric conditions
than analog ones. The result is greater range and more reliable message delivery
per watt of output power.
But, that is not the only advantage of DSC equipped radios. These radios are set up to
interface with GPS and to automate many of the operations involved in sending Intro
and
receiving messages. That results in more compact and accurate messages and less
congestion of the airwaves.
The price of these benefits to the user is the time it takes to do the required set-up
to make the DSC features work. A little time spent when your radio is new will pay
dividends over its life.

Emergency Messages and Distress Procedure

The ability to summon assistance in an emergency is the primary reason to have a VHF

problem can rapidly

into a situation
beyond your control.

may be dispatched.
In any event, communicate with the Coast Guard as soon as you experience difficulties and before

your situation becomes
an emergency.
Use
the emergency
Distress message procedures only
after your situation has become grave or you are faced with a sudden danger threatening life
or property and requiring immediate help. Use Channel 16 to communicate your emergency
message. Make sure you transmit on high power. If you are merely out of gas, do not send
an emergency message. Drop your anchor and call a friend or marina to bring the fuel you
need or to give you a tow.
Marine Emergency Signals
The three spoken international emergency signals are:
MAYDAY
The distress signal MAYDAY is used to indicate that a vessel is threatened by grave and
imminent danger and requests immediate assistance.
PAN
The urgency signal PAN is used when the safety of the vessel or person is in
jeopardy. (This signal is properly pronounced pahn.)
SECURITE
The safety signal SECURITE is used for messages about the safety of navigation or
important weather warnings. (This signal is properly pronounced see-cure-ee-tay.)
When using an international emergency signal, the appropriate signal is to be spoken three
times prior to the message.
If You Hear a Distress Call
You must give any message beginning with one of these signals priority over any other
messages. ALL stations MUST remain silent on Channel 16 for the duration of the
emergency unless the message relates directly to the emergency.
If you hear a distress message from a vessel, stand by your radio. If it is not answered, YOU
should answer. If the distressed vessel is not nearby, wait a short time for others who
may be closer to acknowledge. Even if you cannot render direct assistance, you may be in a
position to relay the message.

Marine Distress Procedure – DSC
Main Icons
Intro
Secondary Icons
•
Digital Selective Calling (DSC) is a semi-automated system that will allow you to press the
Distress button from any routine to send a distress message. When the distress button is
pressed, all other channels go to Standby mode and allow the digitally encoded
“pre-programmed” message to take precedence. Important information such as your
MMSI number, position and name will be transmitted on Channel 16.
The distress alarm will sound for two (2) minutes or until the alarm
is cleared.
DISTRESS
The DSC system allows you to choose a “pre-programmed” Distress
DISTRESS
message. There are many pre-programmed messages to choose from.
