What I type (tripe) is not always what I mean. You are quite right Richard. However there is no call sign
alocated to a transportable (T) set's registration.
Just a thought. What will happen when DSC hand helds become common. Will the MMSI no. have to be registered to the set or remain with the boat? I see more paperwork on the horizon.
Also if you stick to using M & M2 only you do not need an opperators certificate, which has always seemed odd to me.
