In the USA, the manufacture, importation, sale, or INSTALLATION of a fixed mount radio that is not qualified to CLASS-D DSC is prohibited. This more or less ensures that the major manufacturers of VHF Marine Band radios will not make a non CLASS-D DSC fixed mount radio. That prohibition was put in place a couple years ago.


Cf: USCG Website

The US being about 10 years behind its commitment to the IMO and because of the SCM101 dead end.!!!
