Post by gkoutlis »

Guys its worth my try, but how does everyone feel with having a dedicated section for Marine channels - ie Search & Rescue Boats, general frequencies for Boating etc.....

I would definatley appreciate some input and views into this.

Dear Steve, I greatly appreciate your input.

If you wouldn't mind, could you please post the frequencies, and eventually we can turn it into a Sticky Thread or on a Excel Format like WAPOL have??

Thanks again
