Context:

Explanation:
Samband = communications or communications system, generally. See ref page 10 which describes a 'radiooperatør' in a 'sambandsorganisasjon'.
In this context however, "on the radio" fits well, as the one ship seems to be asking the other to move.
"on a communications channel" would fit but sounds very formal.
