what actually confirms a vhf licence is it a document of paper or a reference noted on your car /boat licence so when authorities do a check they know. And do you need a licence for mh/hf radio as this is the ultimate radio for off shore work as it does not require a repeater chanel like the vhf to work over long range distances.

Was listening to an MSQ bloke on the radio. You can have a VHF onboard without penalty. You just need a licence to use it. The same that you can have outdated flares and old life jackets without penalty provided you have in-date items as necessary.

Did my licence course and test with reelchippy last year. You get a plastic card with your pic on it that details whether you're proficient for just VHF or open.

Two qualifications -

Marine Radio Operators VHF Certificate of Proficiency (MROVCP) or

Marine Radio Operators Certificate of Proficiency (MROCP)
