ITU MARS database

Hi.

I registered a licence for my fixed VHF last November and received an MMSI number from Ofcom. Why does my boat not show up on the MARS database?

Thanks

I seem to remember that their database only gets updated at certain intervals. Not sure when or how often, but give it time as it may only be once a year.

Ah yes, but they can only update the information if they have been given it in the first place. For example, I don't know how often Ofcom pass the data onto MARS.
I know that the European ATIS list in Brussels (or wherever) takes a few months to get info from Ofcom.
