As I just finished up taking my LRC course, I can now review this book with a little more authority. Actually, it's an excellent book on the subject of VHF communications and is filled with everything I learned at the course and more. There are nice illustration used throughout and a number of step-by-step instructions for how to send a distress and perform common tasks with the radio. Whether you are just learning the use the VHF or just need to review as a memory aide, this book will prove valuble to have around.
