The vessel is furnished with a number of VHF units, ref. description here.
There is a VHF repeater chain on Svalbard. VHF transceivers with tone signaling can have calls forwarded to the telephone network. We will later establish the range of the repeater chain, and provide description of how to use it.
The Telenor Maritime Radio provides various services. VHF transceivers with Digital Selective Calling (DSC) can make calls to ordinary telephone numbers by following this procedure (in Norwegian). According to this map, there are three coastal VHF stations in Svalbard: Longyearbyen, Isfjord and Ny-Ålesund.
