Marine Assistance & Log On



From the More & Meehan Radio Room on Cantonment Hill, our volunteers operate VN6DI, our 24Hour radio listening watch and vessel log on service, 365 days a year. VN6DI monitors a range of critical radio channels across both the VHF and 27Mhz bands. When calls for assistance come, our operators are poised and at the ready.

To contact VN6DI by radio for log on, or for non-urgent assistance, call us on:

  • VHF channel 73 or
  • 27Mhz channel 90

For emergencies, call on:

  • VHF channel 16 or
  • 27Mhz channel 88

Log Ons

One of the main services VN6DI offers is the ability for boaters to log their journey with us. VN6DI will keep a close eye on the log, and should you become overdue, they will give you a call and even start a search if required. To learn how to log on with VN6DI, click the button below.
