    Default VHF or CB Required

    Is a two way radio required to launch from Valdez?

    It's not "required" to launch. It's a highly recommended piece of equipment though. Communications within the small boat harbor with the harbormaster is initiated on Marine 16, but they operate on 7. CB's are not an official form of marine communication. There is a heavy USCG presence, so you might want to make sure you're in compliance with all the marine safety regulations.
