Commercial Fishing Boat Communications
Commercial fishing is one of the most dangerous trades on the water and thus needs the best specialized communication systems available for the safety of the crew. Whether your boat is a trawler, seiner, troller, longliner, dredger, factory, lift netter, trap setter, or research vessel, it should be equipped with a headset and intercom system that can handle the rigors of a marine environment and protect the hearing of the crew.
In particular, communications between the pilot house and deck crew can be substantially improved with Setcom's System 977 and Liberator Wireless Headset. No more shouting, no more hand signals, no more miscommunication. With Liberator wireless, previously difficult communications are now heard with crystal clear clarity.

- Modular system accommodates up to three radios and ten crew.
- Repairable parts decrease the lifetime cost of ownership, and fast repair turnaround decreases downtime.
- Up to 24dB noise reduction headsets help to protect crew members' hearing in noisy conditions caused by powerful engines, wind, water, and weapons discharging.
- "Instant On" - No need to turn the headset on and off. Advanced motion sensor technology has been integrated into the Liberator Headset. Headset shuts down after 15 minutes of inactivity and will automatically turn back on when the user grabs the headset.
- Cell Phone Integration - Most Bluetooth®-enabled cell phones and other audio devices can be used directly with the Liberator Headset.
- Up to 30 hours of continuous talk time allows for more uses with fewer charges.
Other Systems to Consider:
- Wired System 977: When police department budgets are constrained or ease of daily maintenance is a priority, the Setcom wired System 922 is a perfect solution. Works well on smaller boats where there is not a lot of movement by crew members.
- LiberatorMAX: For when multiple people need intercom wireless communications, the LiberatorMAX is the ideal solution. It is economical, easy to use, requires no installation and has 8 talk group channels.
