Don't worry Mike - I think I put my other half right last night on that one. You can't transfer them, right? It was a trick question.

That's right, they are a vessel identity and as such remain with the vessel they are issued to.

DSC Simulators

Caught this thread a bit late but found it interesting

Clearly as many others have said if you want to learn radio then you want to use real radios- Simrad and Icom training sets are effectivly just that. Real radios with the transmitters removed. I bought 6 Simrad sets just over three years ago and found they revolutionised my DSC training. Many other schools also now have them which I am glad to see as it raises the standard that we are all deliverying.

As Stu (rogue Wave) mentioned I do hire out my sets to other schools and freelancers. The package includes 6 live DSCs, a live Navtex and a selection of dummy EPIRB, SART and hand held radios.

I would like to see the MCA or RYA insist that all schools were using proper kit instead of PC software programmes. However until that date comes I am happy to be able to deliver to my students a far more realisic training course than most of my competitors. Considering that many schools are charging 75 to 100 for this course students should be demanding proper kit.

hope this does not sound like an advert but I do feel strongly on the matter.

I went to the RYA SRC instructors seminar in London last year.
Kim Fisher from the MCA stated he wanted all schools to move towards using live simulators and the PC as and add on or back.

Since we have had the price changes I think our M601's are cheaper than the Simrad.
We can also do them based on the new M421, cheaper still!

This is one of the only things we will sell direct to RYA schools.
By doing this it keeps them as cheap as we can.

Again may be worth speaking the RYA and getting them to offer lease or hire sets to the schools.
Or maybe a good investment for some enterprising person!

Regards

Fully Agree with the above. I think the feelings of customers paying good money for RYA courses in general and ending up with poor boats, kit and equipment etc. is running high amongst the RTE principals on this forum.
You cannot beat the real Icom simulators for courses. OK we use the pc based sets as well, but I do get so frustrated with it!!! I find it a PIG to work sometimes!!!
Happy to hire my sets out to others if required.
Let me know what the latest prices are Jon by e mail please, also for the 421 demo sets.

Again agree with the above , we use Simrad voice trainers , Simrad RD 68 and McMurdo F1 DSC and PC'S
I would like to see the RYA when they come to do their inspections of our schools also check what else we offer and what equipment we have . I have a couple of schools near me who use PMR radios for vhf which in my opinion is not giving value for money.

VHF SRC questions

Hi

What are questions like for the SRC exam?

Examples would be helpful.

Thanks
