    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

Which Marine Frequencies Should I Program Into My Unication G5?

As I posted a few days back, I will be going on a cruise this winter. I may bring my Unication G5 along, which is both VHF & 800 MHz. I can only program 16 conventional frequencies per zone. Which of the marine frequencies should I program in, since I can only have 16 of them?

Depends on where you're going. For instance, New York harbor area uses roughly 10-12 channels for coast guard, calling and other operations. Google marine vhf freq + where you will be and you should get your answer.
