All dsc radios have a number, a phone number if you will. That number can be generated by the dsc radio and used to call or set off an alarm in the ship. Changes are, there would not be many ships in the same area. I did not say a all ships call. You may find the dsc to be a much better tool at sea then a radar reflector. Also, the radios dsc number could also be used to "call or ring" a friends boat.
