In my ongoing efforts to learn Spanish, I'm highlighting a Spanish word each day during April as part of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge. I'm also sharing the random thoughts that pop into my head when I try to pronounce them.
Today's Spanish word is >>frecuencia<< (frequency). And now for some random thoughts.
1 - Having a VHF radio on your boat is essential. Almost as essential as a supply of chocolate. It's how you communicate with other boats, marinas, your shore party, ports of entry, the Coast Guard etc.
2 - It's basically a party line. Everyone can hear what you're saying. Some people don't seem to realize this or they just don't care.
3 - It's important to keep your conversations short and sweet and keep certain frequencies / channels free for emergencies.
Have you ever used a VHF radio? What's your favorite word that starts with "F"?
