Canada must issue international MMSI numbers differently than the US. If you simply applied for a separate radio station license in the US exclusively for the handheld, there would be no connection to knowing what boat you abandon or fell off. I'm curious how that will be different in Canada.

I'm also curious whether Canada will require separate MMSI numbers for redundant mounted radios aboard, ie a back up VHF or an SSB.
