Ship to Shore HF Radio Service


Free of charge HF / SSB radio service covering the entire Pacific Ocean, Coral and Tasman Seas.  Available most days of the year.

Simply subscribe to the service and then notify me at least 24 hours prior to departure on an ocean passage.  I will email you the times and frequencies to listen for my radio calls.


  • Log daily position reports and weather observations from vessel over HF radio.
  • Offer 24-48 hours weather prediction using PredictWind ECMWF model.
  • Accept and deliver radio traffic between vessel & shore parties, including family & authorities.
  • Invitation to talk to other vessels either on passage or at anchor.

 I do not maintain a 24/7 watch for distress and emergency traffic.
