There are several means of communications from a cargo ship, or any other type of ship. Satelite comms. Radio comms either by MF or HF and VHF. Then there are private means by cell phone and texts. Satelite comms are available 24 hrs per day in nearly all parts of the world. It is however an expensive means of communications. Also on ships it is a method that is not always available to crew members depending on the company rules. MF and HF comms are also available 24 hrs per day, but are not the most reliable and do require an officer holding a GoC certificate to be available to make the connection. VHF is the simplest and cheapest of the ship bourn methods but the ship does have to be in range of a coast receiving station. Finally, as mentioned the cell phone either by text ot voice. Usually the cheapest method of communications and one that has no restrictions on it. The crew member does have to have a charged phone with credit and above all has to be in range of a receiving station. As any one who has used a mobilephone will well know reception is not always the best. The final way of communications is by land line when in port. In most ports the Captain will arrange via the ships agents or the local Mission to Seamen for prepaid phone cards to be btoght on board which the ships crew may purchase. As an aside, have you got your husbands working hours correct.0600 to 1800 and 2000 to 2300. These hours would put your husband outside of the "Limitation of hours agreements" and a situation that would find the ship being given defficiencies under the port state inspection regime. The cpmpany, Cptain and the ship are leaving themselves open to very heavy fines if this is in fact correct.
