Hi, does anyone know if it's legal for the use of cb when offshore? or does it come under ham rules where you have to have a full license?
Thanks
Knig

As far as I know CB is legal anywhere except on aircraft....you may need to check that it doesn't interfere with navigation equipment when sailing though.

People have been doing it for as long as CB has been in the UK. Some of the longest-running users are people on fishing boats. The golden rule is, if it's not your boat, get the captain's permission - but I know plenty of occasions where it's been given for people on hand-helds. We once copied a guy on a 4W hand-held on a ferry from Pompey to France most of the way across the Channel. I've done it from the car ferry to the Isle of Wight.
