Right then, I am in need of some info from the gurus in the know please....!
I have a standard handheld vhf, and have come to the point where I may upgrade to a handheld vhf with dsc. I hold a 'SRC' operators certificate. I have searched the internet, and think that I just about understand what is required, ie, apply for a license, free of charge when I get the unit, to obtain a 'MMSI' ....!
This is where I am stumped. How does it work. I have my own sib, which is where I will mainly use the vhf, but, I always take my vhf when I go kayaking. I also use a lot of other vessels for other purposes.
Am I correct in thinking, that when I register the unit, it is under the name of my boat, and how can this be used on other vessels and my kayak? How does all this work, as I cant seem to find a definitive answer....
