A Single SideBand (SSB) radio has a long range so is perfect for sending and receiving messages at sea.

Reviews - What do customers think about Marine SSB Operation: A Small Guide to Ocean Yacht Communications?

Virtually no information on Marine SSB  Feb 27, 2008
This is absolutely the worst book I have gotten from this site, and will be the first I return as soon as I figure out how. Firstly I purchased this book, since I have the same ICOM Marine SSB that is on the cover and I needed to learn how to use it. I just went through the entire book cover to cover and there wasnt one single reference on how to actually use a Marine SSB radio. The first chapter was on Why one needs SSB, the next on what is SSB, then more chapters on radio spectrum, and history, and Licensing etc. Then it starts with how to use a VHF and more info on VHF frequencies, then it jumps to CB and HAM radios. One example of some of the garbage in this book is "If you are using a hand held microphone, if you are right handed use your left hand to operate the controls. NOT ONE MENTION on how to use a Marine SSB, no mention of ITU channels, or when to use them. Nothing about Mariners Nets, NOTHING! Its amazing since the title of the book is "Marine SSB Operation" I needed to know how the group and channel knobs work, what ITU channels should one use...I'm so annoyed, that I just wasted an hour of my life on this dribble.
good initiation  Nov 24, 2007
A good initiation for a new user. Does not contain a lot more than what you have to learn to pass your licence in Australia...
Some interesting points in the range question, day and night.
