The Purpose of this album is to fill a void. Various books have been printed on marine radio communications and navigation procedures, but because of the complexity of their texts they are difficult to apply in actual use. Many pleasure craft owners purchase radio telephones and radio direction finders to use only in case of emergency. When the emergency finally occurs, the mariner finds himself in a complete state of confusion - forced to operate the complicated appearing radio equipment to save his ship and possibly even his life.
We cannot stress enough the importance of learning proper communications and navigation procedures, and must say that they are not as hard to learn as the text-books make one believe. In this album we take you along on a cruise in the Southern California waters. You will learn the proper use of marine radio through an educational medium never before applied to this subject; so sit back, relax, and listen.
