Always do the basics(just ch 16) but make easy for novices to read and repeat.

Yes a custom template that you enter MMSI into and then get printed online and sent to you would have been far more useful.

I think anyone planning to use with a non-icom radio should also carefully consider if the initial instructions about hitting blue button then red button are right for their radio.
Yip a Cobra and SH the CH16 button is red. and depressing those for 2 seconds may put you on a working channel rather than 16.

YES it has to to be GMDSS Compliant.

and would it not be useful to emphasise the need to hold the button for 2[?] seconds].
Er would that be 5 seconds?

And er it should also say wait 2 seconds after releasing the DSC button to allow an ACK and auto re-tune to 16.

Use it as a guide to composing your own with details relevant to your boat & radio.
Then laminate it.
Did the one on mine years ago.
