I'm an Australian currently overseas in the process of buying
a yacht to sail back to Australia
. I'll do the Australian registration
, but in order to obtain an MMSI and technically use the SSB
I'll need a radio
licence which I don't have. I'm also keen to install an AIS
Is there a way around this? My reading on the AMSA site says that a written test must be taken under supervision. Does anyone know if there is a way to complete this overseas or another way to get a mmsi number?
Appreciate the advice.
