When using the Marine VHF radio, there are specific phrases which are used to insure clear communications.
Despite what you may have heard on numerous TV shows, I am remembering “Dragnet” with Sgt. Joe Friday, the phrase “Over and Out” is never used.
“Over” means I have finished speaking and I expect a response from you.
“Out” means the conversation is ended and no response is expected.Tags:radio,radiotelephone,VHF,VHF marine radio operator
