Join your local Radio Club
Each Marine Rescue NSW unit operates a Radio Club for members of the local boating community. These clubs are a great way for you to show your support for our volunteers and the vital emergency service they provide on NSW waterways.
Your small annual club membership fee makes an important contribution to our volunteer fundraising, which is crucial to Marine Rescue NSW as a not-for-profit community-based service.
In return, your local unit provides you with a time-saving, simplified radio service. Each time boaters Log On they need to provide us with a range of basic information to help us find them in the event of an emergency.
As a Radio Club member, you’ll be able to speed up this Log On and Log Off process so you can start enjoying your day out sooner.
Your details are kept confidential and accessible only by Marine Rescue NSW and search and rescue authorities should the need arise.
Each Radio Club member is issued with a unique call-sign to use when contacting us, saving you radio time.
