VHF RADIO INFORMATION/INSTRUCTIONS
Print up this page and take it with you.
|Do not be afraid! It's easy! Just remember that Channel 16 is only used to hail whomever it is you wish to speak to.|
|Once hailed, select another channel, switch over and talk|
|For Example: If you want to rent a boat, turn on the VHF (it is automatically tuned to Channel 16). Push to mike button and say "D&E Boat Rentals, D&D Boat Rentals. This is DoneReach." Let go of the mike button and wait for the reply. You may have to repeat until a reply is given. The reply will be "This is D&D, what channel?" You pick another channel, say "12" (or "14" or whatever you pick), and say "go to one-two" (or one-four or whatever). D&D will acknowledge by repeating the channel back to you, both of you will switch over to the channel you pick and have your conversation.|
|If you want a taxi, you must use Channel 06 instead of Channel 16. Once hailed, you can go right ahead to speak to the taxi on Channel 06.|
|If you want a taxi after you have arrived at DoneReach we recommend using either Taxi 7 (Miss Lilly), Taxi 127 (Elthea), Taxi 1 (Victor Russell) or Taxi 15 (Fernley Lowe). However, all the taxi drivers are equally friendly and helpful.|
|Please note that from the airport, taxis are assigned by cooperative lottery; however once you've arrived, you may call any taxi you wish.|
