Standby for VHF Channel Changes

Not only will the entrance channel to Portsmouth be changing but the channels on your VHF radio will also be changing.
Due to a review & reallocation of frequency bands for Maritime Safety Information (MSI), the MCA has announced channel changes are likely to occur in September 2017.
The preliminary announcement of MSI will continue on Channel 16. Instead of the current channels of 23, 84 & 86 for the MSI & other advice, new VHF channels of 62, 63 & 64 will be used.
Please make a note for future reference.
