VHFThe first two order periods for the ICOM VHF DSC Simulator were a huge success. Not only were there 40 units ordered across the country, there were several enquiries after the last order period closed. For those who missed the first two deadlines, there is now another opportunity to place an order for this excellent classroom value added teaching tool.

In cooperation with CPS-ECP, ICOM Canada has created a new VHF DSC Simulator that can add value for all Squadrons teaching the VHF Maritime Radio course. This simulator is now available to squadrons and districts to purchase through a simple build to order program. The next order period closes November 30, 2017 so place your order today to avoid disappointment.

• Created with actual ICOM VHF radios modified that will not actuate the Canadian Coast Guard Response Centre or other search and rescue agencies.

• Operation of actual radios used on pleasure craft, between fixed and portable units

• Can be used as a companion to the CPS-ECP Maritime Radio Course “Student Notes”

• Preprogrammed fixed, portable and group MMSI numbers which will be known to be a test unit and will not respond to any calls for those MMSIs

• Radios have GPS units installed so that their location automatically appears on the display. If used in a “dead” GPS area, the information can be manually entered

• All radios are mounted in a heavy duty Pelican Case that contains the 12V power supply, 20ft of coax cable, cradle for handheld and the unit also has a circuit breaker for overload protection.

• Lid folds out as a stand for instructional purposes if you are in a seated position, but the radio can be easily changed so you can demonstrate it standing up.

Volvo Penta 130 and 150 SaildrivesOnce our boat comes out of the water, I take the annual fall tour of the hull so I can determine what to worry about all winter. The first thing I note is that the sacrificial anode I had intended to replace prior to launch last spring remains un-replaced.


I recall, as I look blankly at it, that my plan was to attach a brand new anode that I got from the previous owner many years ago, but when I removed it from its packaging, it was clear it wasn’t the correct match for my drive. Perhaps that’s why he hadn’t installed it. And why I went no further.
