Some of it is done for the Ships Radio License, but CG66 goes a bit further in more detail.

When I first did my SRC instructors course, some 18 months ago now, I spent a morning with Solent Coastguard looking in detail at how DSC distress alerts were received and acted upon. I asked the question regarding the database of MMSI numbers and the ability to quickly identify a vessel via it's MMSI number. I was told at that time that no such facility existed.

Now Mike, I have taken note of your comment and rather than just respond I have this morning rung Solent Coastguard and asked them what happens now.

They stated that the software currently in use does not allow for instant identification of a vessel simply via the MMSI number.

"How do you relate the MMSI number to a vessel?" I asked them, "We go to the ITU database firstly!" I was told. I said given that the ITU database can take time to be updated and in fact only identifies the owner/registered name of the vessell, what happens then? I was told that they had their own internal database where they may sometimes find the infomation. I asked if this had anything to do with CG66 and was told no!

So, to repeat myself, instant identification of a vessel via the MMSI number is not yet available. So, when a DSC distress alert is received by a coastal station, they effecticvely "see" exactly the same infomation as any other DSC enabled set - i.e MMSI number, position and the nature of the distress if the sender has used the facility.

Say's who?

My understand that this is still required.
As far as I am aware you are still meant to keep a listen watch on CH16.
There were plans to drop this but it has not come into force.

A little correction Codders - you dont register the radio- you register a boat
( name) with a VHF set and or portable VHF. The radio itself can be any old piece of Junk BUT should be class D. /DSC.. How about giving us your MMSI??- what did a man of your vast experience choose as a radio??
How about the name of supership? got one yet??, A few suggestions
- codprick
- codwinkle
- Isle of Cod
anybody want to add something??

( I am feeling a bit bad today Codo )

It sounds as though they need to get their arses into gear.

Codders was on the right track really.
When you apply for your Ships Radio Licence you get issued with your call sign and MMSI number.
Not when you register your vessel.

You are right you radio can be anything.

Is this Cod battering going a tad to far.
Poor bloke seems to get flamed everytime he posts.
Everyone has a view point some are right, some are wrong.
Either can be taken as a good learning curve.

Nobody is right all of the time, hell some of us never get it right but we are all allowed our own view point

Not a dig at anyone just a general view.

Regards

I did'nt say that- I SAID YOU REGISTER A VHF SET TO A VESSEL NAME'S/SSR/ect ect.

I suppose being in the radio business ... you kinda of get 'hard of hearing,

Anyway this is not cod bashing-- but somebody who sets themselvers up as the beginning and end of ribbing - is asking for well , lets say . friendly advice..

Thanks

Jonathan
