Hi Folks,
I have got the M601 fitted on the Ribcraft. By far the best set I have had on any Rib. It would however be nice to use the fog horn manually as well for 1,2,3, or 5 blasts.
I do not believe the CG will stop listening on 16. Maybe headphone listening watch but it will still come out of the loadspeakers on the PC's that they use!

Thanks for answering the questions, can you clarify what makes it illegal in the UK / EU as it is ITU approved?

They are only approved for US use not EU/UK use.
They are not CE marked either.

They are built to suit a diff market place.

All radio's for the EU/UK market must go through what is called R&TTE approval, none of the US kit would pass it.

Best man to ask is Mike Martin of Ofcom
He can give you full chapter and verse on why.
I can only scratch the surface.

But they are tightening up on "grey imports"
I would not want to get caught.

Hope that helps a bit more for you.

Regards

for what it's worth I like Icom because when you dial Channell 69 a legend comes on the screen saying pleasure (tee hee)!

I have 4 Icoms 2 portables and two fixed sets and my son has just bought a Navman combined DSC/VHF but then he does work for Navmans importers.

I suspect that Icom are Tuned in enough (pun intended) to get a decent and practical combined set out there soon

Have to hold my hand up and admit to having a little laugh at that too last night!

I've used Icoms a lot in the past and think they're great, just a little miffed at the difference in price here in the states. You can see why people would want to import them! I can buy a DSC 502 and bring it back inside the personal import exemption.

Have to say I will definitely buy an Icom though.

Anyone know anything about the new raymarine combined set, this seems reasonably priced and by a well respected make (correct me if I am wrong)?

Just for information, in my previous life, we used to have different classifications of "false alarms" to ensure that statistics weren't used to justify failing to respond to an alarm.

False alarm "good intent" = Someone really thought there was a problem, but were mistaken.

False alarm "mechanical" = fault on the equipment.

False alarm "malicious" = Intentional activation of an alarm for kicks...

False alarm "cause unknown" = Generally, I haven't got a clue what happened and at two o'clock in the morning, couldn't care less....

So if we had more details of these FA’s on the DSC system we could see whether it’s people or equipment problem.

Personally, I like the “big red button” option. I feel that it’s easier to instruct novice crew what to do in the event that I have to leave the RIB in a hurry……..

Oh? The one we had difficulty in classifying... What do you call it when a spider walks into the sensor? The system is sure there’s a fire (Good intent), the system should exclude spiders (Mechanical) or the spider is doing it for fun……….

Cheers, Jono (The other one)

Solent Ribsters don't have that problem, too busy doing it for spiders and cobwebs,
