The Tasman Bay channel 28 located on Drumduan (between the Boulder Bank and Pepin Island) has changed to channel 04.

The coverage area remains the same but mariners should now, when in the Tasman Bay area, select channel 04 to receive weather broadcasts, place trip reports, call other vessels, or contact the Marlborough-Nelson Radio operator.  If members have channel 28 in the scan mode of their radio this should now be removed and channel 04 added.

The repeater (now channel 04) remains permanently linked to both channel 60 in Golden Bay and channel 65 in Pelorus Sound.
