Talking Norway and the Arctic Sea

Greetings,

I am going on an adventure and would like the forums help programming a VHF portable.

I am taking a Motorola HT1550XLS with me on this trip. I've got the Special Red battery, but would like to use my laptop here to program in Alpha Tags before departure.

I will be in Norway and then out to Sea.
Can anyone explain how Marine Radio is used in this region? Is this the same series of frequencies used in local US Waters and often posted online?

What are the operations in Norway like?
I'm particularly interested in off-shore Medical Operations.

Thanks!

Outside of North America the International VHF marine band plan is used.
Marine VHF Channel Version Comparison Chart - The RadioReference Wiki
The Scandinavian countries have some "private" marine channels in the 155 MHz range.

There is a Norwegian frequency database at Frekvenser.no - Liste over norske radio frekvenser - Lytt til Politi, Brannvesen, MilitƦr, Osv...
I have no idea how accurate it is.
Searching for stuff like
Nordsjų (North Sea)
helse (health or medical)
AMK (regional EMS dispatch centers)
luftambulanse (air ambulance)
offshore (offshore)
on that site gives quite a few hits.

If your looking just for marine VHF frequencies like the ones boats use for distress or to avoid collisions I'd look up the international marine frequencies. The us ones are different and the Canadian ones aren't even the Same as us or international

Now I just need the Rosetta Stone ;-)\


Thank you for this useful information. Now I've got to come up with my own channel plan.

That should take a while
