Re: Choosing/spec'ing VHF radio?
I have the Standard Horizon handheld with DSC and GPS. I was easily able to log onto the BoatUS MMSI registry and change the boat information when I got my new boat. No need to leave a DSC handheld when selling a boat.
You may want to double check that....
Here is a quote from the Standard Horizon HX851 handheld User Manual, page 34;
WARNINGA user MMSI can be inputted only once
(as per government regulation). Therefore please be careful not to input the incorrect MMSI number. If you need to change the MMSI after it has been programmed, the radio will have to be returned to Factory Service...
