You’re not allowed to communicate on 14.300 MHz frequency using your SSB radio unless you are an amateur licensee. But make sure you know how it works in case of an emergency
“Under normal conditions, transmissions by non-amateur stations on this frequency are prohibited by international law,” said Assistant Net Manager Tom Job, VE3II, who lives near Toronto and took the initial call for help. “But when an emergency occurs at sea, anyone can use the frequency for assistance.” At the time, the 80-foot, steel-hulled Brandon Travis was reported two days east of Roatan, Honduras.”
