CELLULAR PHONE SERVICE

With cellular phones and cellular service now commonplace ashore, many boaters also carry cell phones on board. In theory, all of the coast of Maine has cellular coverage, but a cell phone is by no means a substitute for a VHF radio. The cellular coverage for the Maine coast is currently a collage of cells covered by various mobile service providers, and the size and control of the cells is in constant flux. Consider the cellular phone an important complement to the VHF.
