Three Canadian warships in town at the moment down at the shipyards on the North Shore. I snagged a free ticket to the open house starting today through until this Sunday.
I brought the trusty 436 on board and left it on Close Call and Search UHF bands but got skunked. One sailor had a UHF radio on with very stubby antenna. Another security type person had a MOTO VHF on him. No comm's observed. I was really hoping to snag that elusive comm !

Been in the same situation here in Boston - Nothing found

I've been seeking them for years, when they visit Boston and have struck out each time never finding Shore Patrol, Water Security etc
Tried 138-144/148-151. 162-174. 380-400. 400-420 and the UHF 457/467 Marine allocations

I saw in particular a console that clearly showed F1-F4 telephone style , clearly UHF based on antennas seen. A good video on YouTube shows moto UHF, etc
We have this thing called are WG (whiskey golf) off Nanoose Bay and you can hear the sim's being done on VHF 139-140 in CSQ
we will keep trying though.

There was an episode of Downey Live where he was on HMCS Nanaimo. They were using Motorola APX portables to communicate between the ship and a Zodiac while doing exercises. They were clearly using analog. The antennas appeared to be VHF, but that's just a guess.
