To my knowledge, Ch 37 (M1) is used by the UK Marinas and Yacht Clubs, however, the Raymarine Ray45VHF uses the US VHF Marine Radio Channels allocations/standard where there is no Ch 37 (actually no Chs 29-59).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa

    Hi again,

    It can not be changed, the limitation is built-into the firmware in compliance with the US FCC regulations, sorry.

I have a Raymarine Ray 54 vhf radio at my beach house. Apparently the local station to listen to marine is 77. I can get 77 but it does not come up International I have been told that in order to get...


Channel 77 (156.875 mHz) is the same frequency on BOTH US and International channels and is generally used for Port Operations. I see no need whatsoever for you to bother with the International designation.

Hope this helps.

Where can I buy a Raymarine replacement cord and microphone for a 2004 VHF

Sadly, the mic and cord for the Ray54 have been discontinued by the manufacturer. I guess if you plan to buy a Raymarine VHF, your best bet would be to buy a spare radio for parts. Unbelievable.

Here's the link to that conversation from Raymarine support.

I realize this question is old, but the information could be helpful to someone else.

Hi Michael

From the owner's manual (Page 14) you need to press "menu", then select "Frequency Group", then you have the choice of USA, Canada or International channels:

Here's the link to your owner's manual should you require it:

You cannot just reprogram your Raymarine to european standard.

This radio has been built and is licenced for using with USA frequency, in Europe his use will be limited to lower bands with no modification.

To be fully adapted to higher bands, the radio must be taken apart, and you need to bridge a contact on the main board.

The use of the radio after modifacion won't be legal in Europe.
