Looking for ideas/help on how to test my DSC
functionality (without going through an official DSC
test function and alerting authorities). The vessel is USCG registered but not located in US waters.
I recently purchased a new iCom
M424G VHF radio
(with built in GPS) and (hopefully) connected it correctly to my Raymarine
AxiomPro chart plotter so I can also see any DSC distress
calls on the AxiomPro MFD. MMSI # is programmed into the new VHF radio
. I also have a DSC/AIS MOB
device that is programmed with my vessel MMSI#, but don't have a way to test that device either (that it will show up on the chart plotter if activated)
Thank you for any suggestions..
