Private channels

How do I add private channels such as M1 and M2 etc to my Raymarine 54E? Also channel 37 is used locally - how do I get it? Why can't you just input frequencies like you can on amateur band stuff???

That is my concern - it came from Cactus in the UK but after my experiences with them and little rumours I have heard I think they may well be grey imports???

Someone just told me the set has to go back to Raymarine to be setup - there must be some way of doing it yourself?

Maybe Jon Brooks will know - I DID buy an Icom M1V Euro as well but that seems to have gone missing......

Yes, 37a, M and M1 are all the same channel (Used to be the marina channel, now used for Yacht Club Safety Boats/Race Control etc).

Don't know about the Raymarine, but the Icoms certainly used to have M2 in them under P4, slightly strangely.

I think they used P instead of M as you can't display an M on an LCD matrix if my memory serves me.

Send a message via MSN to Jon Brooks
All UK radio's should have M1 (37a) and M2 (P4) in the radio as standard.

Some of the early Ray54 did not have them in.
I was lead to understand this had been sorted.

Regards
