The UHF for marine use is the 27 meg, however the use of the VHF radio is perhaps better with a greater range.
27MHz is actually in the HF band (3-30MHz) and not the UHF band (300MHz-3GHz). I think any mention of UHF in conjunction with marine radio purposes here is just confusing for people.
27MHz is similar to terrestrial based 40 channel CB radios we had in the 80's but the actual marine channels are different different and a 27MHz marine radio cannot communicate with a "CB" radio.
