we have that too, all I am saying is that ham is a earth station with a call sign as a base station and ssb marine is for a boats registered for that radio and it has a call sign given by FCC. Ham radios the FCC these not give call signs to boats only to a stations. those are the regulations. illegal you can do anything until you get caught for the perpose of US waters and ARRL'S FCC Rule, and 47 C.F.R Part 80 subpart H. capich? good that you have a licence.

Cas8. I have no idea what you are talking about. Your language is too cryptic.

I stand by what I said above. Use your ham hardware wherever you want given the rules as outlined in part 97. Use your marine hardware and it's more restrictive station licensing as mentioned. You can google around and you will see plenty of ham operators taking their ham gear on ships and having a great time. Captains permission and visiting country licenses needed. You just cannot transmit on marine freq. Good luck.

casique, ROFLMAO.
"all is cool but ham is for a earth station, and not for marine use"
The regulations about marine radio use have nothing to do with ham radio. Ham radios can be, and regularly are, operated from fixed stations, marine stations, aeronautical stations on aircraft, rockets, and balloons, and even from the International Space Station (ISS) and unmanned ham radio satellites.
All perfectly legal, all covered under every class of ham license. A ham radio can be legally operated anyplace that the control operator can get the radio to work from, and that his license is geographically valid by US law or ITU (reciprocal) convention.

Now, if you have ham and marine radios both installed on a ship, the laws may require separation of the equipment, depending on licensing and certifications of the equipment and the operator.

But ham radio being unsuitable, illegal, or improper in marine use?

ROFLMAO!

In fact, the regulations have loosened in recent years and it is no longer necessary for a ham operating in the US to use region designators, or to call "mobile" "portable" "aeronautical" or other modification when they are identifying their station. As they say in the big gray ships "If you got 'em, smoke 'em!"

You've been badly mislead.

hellosailor is more than correct...and gave quite a detailed description of the universal set of operations

used to be you used something like /mm at the end of your call sign when operating

I believe the oceans are considered part of the earth's surface. If not, then the bottom of the ocean's certainly are and are within this range.

ok good and dandy, these the call sign of the ship registered is the same call sign of the ham radio? if not then, The only call sign radio as marine ssb have the call sign of the ship and registerd to the ship, I dont care about mobal stations, airplaines or rockets and if you dont use the earth station on a boat, I am only talking about the ships callsign registered for the ship (NAUTICAL VESSEL), and in grey boats, if you smokem its outside, not inside, its prohibited in grey Goverment ships, FINITO BAUWAUUU
