I think technically if one is going to talk to the other they should be both registered. If you were going to keep one switched off and only turn it on once the other has died then while very technically it should probably be licensed there would be no real reason to.

That said its free so... why not?

A fixed hard wired radio is registered to the particular vessel (ships radio licence). A handheld can be registered on a ships licence but can then only be used on that vessel or it's tender by anyone with a SRC licence. Or you can get a transportable licence which is registered to an individual which lets that person use a handheld on any vessel. My understanding is that you can own any number of handhelds on one transportable licence as one person can physically only use one radio at any one time. If two people were going to use two handhelds both people need a transportable licence with separate Txxxxxx call signs. In effect the Txxxxxx call sign identifies the individual. So I would use T123046 on any handheld I was using (I own several) and that can be traced back to me, not a particular radio.

I could be wrong but the above is my understanding of the rules.

"The licence is issued
with a ‘T’ (reference) number rather than a vessel call
sign; therefore the vessel name is usually used as an
identifier. The T (reference) number is not a call sign
recognised internationally and licensing details are not
sent to the ITU."

From http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct...59026428,d.d2k

With lots of other useful info too.

Do also consider that if it's a DSC handheld then it will have a unique MMSI number - or at least, if you have more than one with the same MMSI running it will get unreliable and potentially unsafe in an emergency.

Hope this helps

Steve
