Generally a VHF will have to be returned to the manufacturer or main dealer for a reset. It's a bit scammish IMO, but I think that it is like this to stop people removing the MMSI by accident while fiddling with the set. There are some codes available for some sets that work - try a google for yours. Don't hold your breath. If the set is older, it may be time to sell it and upgrade...

Surely by the manufacturers not allowing the MMSI to be reset means that DSC VHFs acquired second hand are being used with another vessels MMSI programmed in which is a BIG problem as the coastguard will be searching for the wrong vessel if the red button is pressed.

These is no need to change the MMSI, just change the license details on the ofcom website, the MMSI is tied into the radio not the boat.

Its not my understanding - and the OP is in portugal so Offcom presumably no help.

The "rule" comes from the ITU guidance on DSC radios that the user should not be able to change without input from the manufacturer.

mmsi is part of the radio not the name of your boat or length or anything with the vessel . mmsi is like a tv licence

The MMSI is issued by OFCOM as part of your Ship Radio Licence. The MMSI therefore "belongs" to the ship, not to the radio or to the owner, so if the ship changes hands, the MMSI goes with it. If the radio only changes hands, the MMSI should be erased and a new one entered, otherwise there is a risk of two boats afloat with the same MMSI. (for the avoidance of doubt, "Ship" is OFCOM radio speak for anything that floats with a fixed radio in it.)

MMSI's for hand portables are different.

OMG I have been teaching this WRONG then for the past 12 Years !!!

Sorry Bud that is NOT right, the MMSI is issued to the VESSEL !!!
The only MMSI's issued other than o a vessel are those for a Portable (HH) DSC radio and to Shore based TRAINING Radio's !!
