Re: Marine handheld small enough to fit in life jacket?

If you need to change the MMSI no. when you sell the boat you can, you just send it back, at least with SH you do. They deleted the no. in my last radio for free.

A strong argument FOR DSC in a handheld is range - while talk.might have a range of a few miles, DSC works over 2-3 times further.

Unfortunately, the main argument against is bulk!
