by other boats. Try to remember to use HIGH transmit power
only when at sea, and LOW power when in port. It's a one-button courtesy, and it's also the law. Of course, if you need to contact someone farther away, by all means use high power, but
LOW power should be your VHF radio's default setting when
docked or at anchor.
MARITIME VHF BAND PLANS
- UNITED STATES, INTERNATIONAL
AND CANADIAN (U, I, C)
Many boaters don't really understand the differences between the
three distinctive Marine VHF channel sets or band plans. One
might reasonably suppose that if you're operating an American or

Canadian registered boat, then you should stick with the US or
Canadian channels, regardless of where you're sailing. This is not
so. In Canadian waters, use the Canadian setting "C." In the
USA, switch the radio to "U." When cruising internationally, away
from Canada and USA, it's not the best idea to use the US or
Canadian VHF band plan. Most vessels from other countries may
not be able to reach you reliably on channels other than Ch-16
and 68. Use the International "I" setting on your VHF radio.
Check with the local VHF radio band plan convention whenever
you sail to a new country so that your radio is on the same page as
everyone else around you. You might have to find this band plan
switching procedure in your VHF operator's manual. Depending
on your brand of radio, it might not be very obvious.
