Default DSC question

I have a dsc capable radio that came on my boat. What do I need to do to register and get a specific number to transmit to buddies?

You also need to interface the VHF to your GPS to send (and possibly receive) position information

Remember most VHF and SSB radios with DSC capabilities only allow you to enter the MMSI number TWICE! So don't mess it up when you enter it. Otherwise it will need to go back to a dealer or the manufacturer.
