Setting Up My New VHF.

Recommended Posts

Mmsi- maritime mobile service indentity number is a unique ID number for your boat. Coastguard will issue you one if you ask. Without it, your radio will not work on DSC (if equipped), and if you have an ais transponder it wont go either.

Just filled in online form on CG website that looks like I’ve ordered myself (and paid for) new MMSI.

 

But acknowledgement email I’ve received reads as though I’ve ordered an online boating education course.

 

So god knows what’s going to arrive!

Yes in the end I got a call from a very helpful lady who talked me through the options and set everything up on the spot.

So now I have renewed VHF callsign and new MMSI for all my kit - perfect!

That's cool. I had very noisy transition but tried it again without the VHF/FM/AM splitter and it works fine. Why would that be. Now hoping to get the radio connected to the plotter so that the position is shown on the radio screen.
