The station is as far as I know almost unique in the field of Maritime communications as it is located in a country with no coast.

They do however have a Merchant Navy!! Click HERE for the Web Site

Bernradio is working H16 (0600 - 2200 UTC European Wintertime and 0500-2100 UTC European Summertime) on voice and H24 on SITOR telex.

They also offer a 24-hour service for the exchange of other data (e-mail and fax).
