Yes - True about ch 80 , M or M2 , I now have Marina CRS (Coastal Radio Station) for club and we operate on M right now, also have group MMSI number for club boats, but only helps if your on the water!
Need get a radio reprogrammed backwards for 80! will get it done over winter, so we can use 80 since it's duplex!
