ROC stands for Restricted Radiotelephone Operator’s Certificate and is required by anyone using a marine VHF or MF-HF radio (each person on the boat who will use the radio needs their own card). In addition, if you received your ROC card before the new Digital Selective Calling was introduced you are encouraged to rewrite and get your DSC endorsement for your ROC-M card.
