Marcom-A is a very complete and illustrated book about various aspects of maritime radio communication according to the GMDSS.

In addition, many practical matters are discussed, such as the properties, the possibilities and the use of radio communication systems, the procedures for emergency, emergency and security traffic and various satellite systems. This makes Marcom-A an important guideline for those who must be in possession of the Marcom-A certificate, both for sea shipping, hydraulic engineering and sea fishing as well as recreational shipping.
The contents of the book are fully in line with the requirements set by the Telecom Agency for General Certificate Maritime Radiocommunication.
