Single Side Band Radios (SSB)

Single Side Band Radios (SSB)

Single Side Band radios are especially suited for the marine environment because of the type of frequency they emit. These SSB radios enable voice communications to travel greater distances allowing boaters to communicate with ease and effectiveness. Communications can be sent and received with greater power using less wattage via SSB than with say AM bands using two side band. Another benefit to marine SSB radios is that since they do not transmit continuously when not in use it makes it harder for pirates and thieves to hone in on the presence of a vessel. Other radios are easier to pick up. Because SSB are able to cut the bandwidth in half it is able to effectively nearly double it's efficiency. All serious boaters have SSB single side band radios because they can't afford to navigate using broken channels of communications. The SSB is used as yet another tool in the captain's safety and navigational arsenal. You'll need to buy a SSB single side band marine antenna as well. These are sold separately and they come in a variety of materials and sizes for specific applications.
