Simrad UK - Free DSC Course Offer
World market leader Simrad looks to reward their DSC customers
  Following the success of its DSC promotion at the London Boat Show and with more and more leisure boat owners opting to buy radios that comply with GMDSS legislation, leading electronics manufacturer Simrad has launched a new promotion for the 2002 season to UK customers purchasing a Simrad DSC radio.

A free RYA approved course will be offered to the first 250 customers who make a valid application to Simrad, having bought any one of the range of Simrad DSC radios listed below:

RD68, DSC1400, HD52 and RS8400 DSC

Usually costing between £40-£70 and lasting for about four hours, the courses will enable the participants to register for a DSC licence, which they will need in order to operate their DSC radio.

Courses will be taught by a qualified RYA GMDSS instructor and will take place at Simrad’s new high tech training facility in Hampshire between April 2002 and July 2002. To be eligible for a free DSC course, the radio must be purchased in the UK and the purchaser must hold a current, valid VHF licence.

For an application form and further information, please contact Simrad on 01329 245100.
