Most Marine Rescue NSW units operate a Radio Club for members of their local boating community. These clubs are a great way for you to show your support for our volunteers and the vital emergency services they provide on NSW waterways.
While some units may have different names for their Radio Clubs, the Botany Port Hacking Unit uses SBP ("Seahawk Bravo Papa") as the member prefix for Seahawk Botany Port Hacking.
Our members and supporters
who have signed up receive a unique Marine
Rescue-issued radio call sign, membership card
