Fixed or hand held?
I think I might have a Raymarine 55e unused factory reconditioned unit in the shed, I'll have a look over the weekend. You can have it for a 50 donation to the RNLI + postage


Sh1t happens

I've found it out, unfortunately it's got my old mmsi number programmed in, so it must have been fitted at some point, all be it briefly. I wonder if there's a dealer out there willing to reset the mmsi in aid of a good cause😊??

so, if it has your mmsi number, does that mean its completely unusable, or that the dsc function can't be used?

I will do some digging regarding a reset.

thanks

It means it will work, but they come looking for the wrong boat. It really needs reprogramming, it's a five minute job for a dealer. Some radios will let you change it once yourself?

Yes, but unfortunately not this one. Just checked the online guide for this model, it requires a dealer to reprogramme.

Looks like the nearest dealer is Plymouth, a two hour drive from me.

If not bothered about DSC not a problem then just wait till your near a dealer then re- program it's as new bargain.
