The hot tips so far are Darwin High School & Kornilda College. REMEMBER sailing is FUN Jenny Simondson Training Provider DSC received a Fax ftom the Ma-rrne Branch, Department of Transport and Works, advising of the probable phase out of Coastal IIF and VHF radio services by June 2002, and seeking input from sailors o[ . Whether they were aware of this . What impact it would have . Their preferred altertratives for safety commudcation. The loss of radio services, withour an appropriate and affordable alternative was considered to be a major problem in this area, where alternative means of communication do not exist. It was resolved to answer tbe .fax making tbe following points: 1. Sailors are most concerned at the probable loss of existing radio faciliues. 2. The loss of Darwin radio staff has already caused problems, as Perth radio staff are quite unfamiliar with the Da]'win area. 3. Radio (or a suitable alternative) is required for all commudcation aI sea. not onJy for emergency situations. In the Darwin area, Darwin radio provides the only commu.nication flcility, which is available 24hrs per oay. 4. In the remote areas of the ToD End and tbe Kimberley, radio is lhe only communication available, other than satellite communications. which are not economically feasible for most recreational sailors. 5. The advice of the AYF is being sought on the Nationaf approach to this problem. lnformation on available afternauve communication" with indication of costs, is necessary before an informed tesponse can be rnade. Craig Waters, Vice Commodore
