Have you ever wondered as you are heading out from our marina if your VHF Radio is functional? Well, now you can check its operation without clogging up Channel 16 or waiting to converse with a buddy on a working channel. SeaTow and Maritel have combined with MBYC to provide an Automated Radio Check (ARC) system to Lake Washington. Simply switch to VHF channel 25, key your mike, and request a radio check! If all is working properly, you will hear a recorded message identifying the system and its location, followed by a playback of your request. Finally, you will hear a boating safety message.
