    New boats will be issued with a new MMSI number,
    If A second hand boat the MMSI number [if it has one] stays with the boat, you should be able to go into the set and find its MMSI number.
    Hope this helps

    We Have just gone through the same process.

    When we bought our boat S/Hand it had a DSC VHF fitted but we could not find the MMSI no, I contacted the Radio licensing centre and the said 'don't worry just fill in a new application and we will issue a new MMSI No'.

    I applied on-line at www.radiolicencecentre.co.uk filled in the forms and 8 days later have the new radio Licence with DSC VHF, VHF Portable and Radar and a new MMSI No.

    All in all Very efficient.

    Ian , the boat if it has a DSC enabled radio will have a call sign and (should) an MMSI number. Both stay with the boat for its life. If you have the exsiting call sign and boat name visit http://www.itu.int/ITU-R/terrestrial...x.asp>MARS</A> with licenses being issued via The Radio Licensing Centre, The Post Office, PO Box 885, Bristol BS99 5LG.

    To recap - the Ship Radio Licence stays with the vessel through changes of name and ownership. I am assuming here that the boat you've bought is not new. If it is then you apply to the same address, you will be issued with a call sign and MMSI number which you can enter using the instructions from the handbook!

    We checked our boat and found a call sign but no MMSI, the radio licence that came with the boat only had a call sign, we also found the radio had never been programed with a MMSI.

    That could be why we have a new MMSI.

    Not entered the new MMSI yet , is it difficult? I seem to remeber you only get 1 go at getting the No right

    Looking at your profile I'd have thought you'd no problem in entering the number - but your right, you only get one chance!

    What! I have only:
    a) Knocked an entire wheel off and bent the suspension of my car.
    b) Blown up an Autopilot Course Computer
    c) Took 2 weeks to fit a wind instrument
    d) Taken 6 weeks to fit a new VHF
    e) Cut out a monster hole in the side of the flybridge only to find that there was a solid former behind it. I now have a Semi-Circular circle!
    I better stop here....
