It used to be a requirement for vessels to carry qualified Radio Officers. This is no longer the case. Deck Officers now undergo training in GMDSS. All systems are doubled up for the event of a failure.
Check out GMDSS in Google.

Not an expert on this by any means but I would imagine that the requirement for nearly all of this sort of traffic has now been replaced by AIS and Inmarsat?
