Maritime Mobile Service Identity
Marine radios featuring Digital Selective Calling (DSC) can be used for automated distress hailing when programmed with a unique code called a Maritime Mobile Service Identity, or MMSI.
Members of America’s Boating Club Houston support a multitude of charities and charitable organizations in the marine and maritime world. The Houston Squadron believes that the voluntary giving of help to support all things in the maritime world is worthwhile. Our lakes, rivers, seashores and tidal basins are home to our recreation. We aim to support those who make life better in the world aquatic.
The Squadron Radio Technical Officer (Houston) will help with radio and electronic matters within the squadron, assist members on marine electronics equipment; and keep members informed of changes in FCC Rules and Regulations, international treaties and requirements of other regulatory bodies affecting maritime telecommunications. Contact our S/RTO if you have questions or need assistance.
