Well the Portable will be a bit pointless as on-line registration for a boat will be free. If you use a variety of boats with one hand-held you might just as well register each one properly. It's also good for delivery skippers who were the main end users of Portables as they can register the Boat before they go off to pick it up again FOC.

I suppose that it might be worth it for longer deliveries, but unlikely to be worth the effort for odd days here and there.

Who wants to jump through hoops to keep registering a hand held over and over again (even if it is free)? Why not just have a lifetime transportable licence?

I have a hand held VHF, and no boat. The radio is currently unlicensed and will probably remain so . . .

That's fine I am assuming you've unscrewed the antenna and taken the battery off the back so there's no problem.

The thing is that once again the Portable licence was a UK only thing, the international rules are that every boat using radio is supposed to have a unique callsign issued by its flag state.

It was thought to be unfair to make people pay for say 5 Ship licences when there was one radio unit amongst the vessels involved.

The reason alot of people dont have radio licences is propably that they dont even know they even exist!

When i started i knew i wanted a radio but didnt know about having an ofcom licence but i did want to learn the correct use procedures.

Is this true - once you've registered once and got an MMSI what makes you renew? Will it be reissued?

From the way I understand it.
If you have had all you reminders and then a few back up letters they will re issue.
So potentially more than one radio using the same mmsi.

Am sure Mike will confirm or otherwise next time he is on line.
