If you've gotten a Ship's Station License, from the FCC, you will be assigned a callsign. You will need a Ship's Station License if you plan on communicating with foreign stations via radio—either marine or terrestrial.

Call sign? Is that a shortened version of the boat name?
I didn't think most small boats had a call sign. The boat we're
taking is a Compac 23 so we can trailer down to
FL and save some time. Should we have a call sign? Just looked up MMSI and will register
with Boat US. Thanks for bringing that up.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
