COMMUNICATIONS FOR THE COASTWISE VESSEL
Early this year the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) initiated proceedings in their Docket No. 79-336 which concerns exempting certain vessels, under certain conditions, from the mandatory 500 kHz radiotelgraph watch. The American Institute of Merchant Shipping (AIMS) has supported the need for such change and has submitted a 200 page document urging the Commission to act favorably in this matter. The Paper being presented today is a summary of the FCC Docket and the AIMS' response, with numerous recommendations for improving "communications for the coastwide vessel."
