Re: Please School me on VHF/GPS/AIS Combo Units

Yes, CG transmissions will not test your useable range because they are very high power and usually located high up. Likewise, they could be communicating with a boat far away from you, so you wouldn't hear them.

You need to find recreational boat traffic to speak with between 5-15nm away.
