Using a DSC-capable radio without having an MMSI? - UNIDEN MHS135
The Admiral made me a present of a lovely hand-held VHF - Uniden MHS135, with all the bells and whistles. Sadly, I've hit a snag: When I try to access the menu, the very first item is a call for an MMSI number, and I don't have one, nor can I really get one - I sail on rented boats only. (Working on it, but - money...)
Is there a "dummy" MMSI number - one that simply translates to "unconfigured"? - or does anyone know how to bypass that first menu so that I can get into the GPS etc. setup?
I really only planned to use DSC for the emergency beacon button, anyways...
Any help would be highly appreciated.
