RIBnet group MMSI

RIBnet now has a group MMSI

The number is 023200057

Let's see if anyone can work out how to use it!

John

I know how to use it, but there aren't any more Ribnetters down my way.

I still don't see many mmsi's popping up on the profiles

It'll be good to use the group mmsi when there's a decent number of ribs out and about though, just need more ribnetters locally like gingercoastie

The article is entitled "Have you got the right kind of MMSI?

The forms to get Ship Radio Licences and to amend existing ones in order to get MMSI numbers issued are here:

Mmsi

I remember mentioning MMSI's and a log some months ago and got somewhat Poo Poo'ed.

Why hasn't John had the same treatment.

A MMSI Database would be an excellent idea.

SO how does this group think work?

Do I have to tell my DSC unit (Icom DSC-100) to look out for calls to this group number? If so can someone walk me through how I set this on a DSC-100.

Or do I need to register somewhere that I would like to be part of the Ribnet MMSI group, then any calls to the Ribnet number are automatically passed on to my individual MMSI number (though when writing this down, don't actually see how it could work!).

Thanks

David

What sort of radio have you got?

There will be an item in the menu called "Group" or "Group MMSI" or similar, and it will most likely work in a similar fashion to the directory. The main difference is that you can only enter one group number.

If you enter the RibNet Group MMSI, any DSC calls sent to that group while you're in range will get to you.

You can only have one Group MMSI in the radio at any one time.

HTH.

DSC unit is an ICOM DS-100, VHF is Icom M401.

Can't see where to enter "I'm a member of this group" into the DS-100.

Where's Jon Brooks when you need him?
