Question Do I need a RROP (Restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit) if I have a Technician class license?

I just bought a boat and now I'm in the process of applying for my Ship Station License. I also (may) need Restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit since I'm sailing in foreign water. If I currently hold a Technician class license, do I still need the RROP?

In order to help provide accurate answers, it would help if we knew your nationality and flag country of your boat.

Alternately you could add the information to your profile details and it will appear every time you post.

If you are on a US flagged boat the answer is yes you do. And you need it in US waters.

I agree with Wotname. Providing your location and boat info in your profile helps others to help you.

The answer is yes. In the US sailing in foreign waters means you need a RROP , there is no test , you merely apply to the fcc. Your amateur radio license does not allow you across to the marine radio frequencies
