Here's my understanding. If you have a RRO license
, anyone on the boat may used the VHF
under your supervision. If they violate any laws or regs, you will be strung up from the yardarms and keel-hauled by the FCC, along with the perpetrator.
That sounds about right. In Amateur Operation anyone can operate a radio
at my station under my supervision using my privileges so they can talk to anyone anywhere (within regulations) on any of the bands I can use.
If my wife is the "control operator" then they can only use her privileges.
If my wifes wants to operate our station under my privs then she has to give both callsigns in the form of "this is KB0IRW/N0NJY" etc. So she has to identify her license
class, then identify that I am there "supervising".
I know all this has little to do with Marine radio
, but if you're going to operate in the ham bands those rules apply to to that operation.
