I am building a boat from scratch. Screw kits. I was wondering what do I do about the radio. I don't have anything to work from.

Just pick yourself up an inexpensive 4 channel 75MHZ radio. Should be more than enough for what you need on a boat.

Make sure you get a radio that is on the ground frequency. I think 72 mhZ and MAYBE 75 mhZ is on the air frequency and will shoot down any airplanes within your transmitters range. I've seen it happen. Thanks.

To clarify:

72MHz is for AIR ONLY
75MHz is for GROUND ONLY
27MHz may be used for both, usually for toys
50MHz belongs to HAM licensed operators only.

you can probably find an inexpensive used car radio, 2 or 3 channels if that is all you need, very easily.

27mHz is usually used for "novelty" items and indoor flyers (for aircraft)

For cars, they're typically of the cheap "toy" variety.
