Re: FCC license VHF SSB radios: confused about

Can comment on specific US FCC processes. But a ships station license and hence its MMSI and call sign are assigned to the vessel not the owner. If the owner details change you merely update the station details to reflect the new owner.

MMSI and call sign information should end UL in the ITU database. Its online and publicity accessible over the web so you can check the details.

"You cannot transfer your SHIP STATION LICENSE to another person or ship. The new owner cannot modify your license, but must apply for a NEW license."

Agreed. I have a single source that indicates that once the previous ship station license is cancelled the MMSI may be transferred to the new ship station license (saving reprogramming VHF, HF, and AIS radios). I'm still working on getting that confirmed by the FCC.

It would seem this aspect is different amongst different national authorities
