Join Tas Maritime for $25
(Saturday 1 October 2022)
MAST, Tas Police and Tas Maritime radio have launched a new season promotion to encourage people to join Tas Maritime Radio (TMR).
This follows a surge in numbers of people calling triple zero for minor incidents or for matters where a simple call to TMR would solve the problem.
From October 1, MAST will pay the joining fee of $10 and TMR will reduce the first year subscription by $10, for the first 300 people joining TMR…. pay just $25 total. A lot of boaties are depending on mobile phones to get themselves out of trouble on the water when the best way by far is via VHF marine radio because calls can be made direct to TMR from virtually anywhere in the state 24/7 (Golden Electronics Security take urgent or emergency calls to TMR from 7pm – 7am). When police receive a call for assistance by phone they immediately call TMR. This step can be dispensed with if you have a radio and call
Membership of TMR would make an ideal Christmas gift.
