VHF radio system intermittent outages near Southeast Alaska

The Coast Guard encourages all mariners throughout Alaska to remain vigilant and carry a redundant means of communication: Ideally, this would include an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB), Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) or satellite messaging device. Other suggested communication means include a cellular telephone, when in range, a satellite phone, or high frequency radio communications on 4,125 kHz, 6,215 kHz, and 8,291 kHz:

Mariners can contact the Coast Guard Sector Juneau command center via cellular or satellite phone at 907-463-2980.

Mariners can contact the Coast Guard Sector Juneau command center via cellular or satellite phone at 907-463-2980: Mariners are requested to keep an active radio watch and relay any unanswered calls for assistance to the Coast Guard:

“ Until this outage is resolved, it’s crucial for mariners to have alternative forms of communication with them,” said Cmdr. Meredith Gillman, search and rescue mission coordinator: “ It is also recommended that mariners create a float plan and file it with their local harbor master or trusted friends and family.”
