Here are some of the links that we discussed at the club night last night:
Application for a Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) number.
Information on MMSI’s including where to submit your application.
MMSI Database Search (Find someone’s MMSI).
Application for a Maritime Mobile Radio Station License.
Information on Maritime Mobile Radio Station Licences (scroll down under Ship Radion Station Licencing)
Where to apply for an MMSI or Maritime Mobile Radio Station Licence and who to call for more information.
Canadian Radio Aids to Marine Navigation
As well, I have attached a couple of the handouts from last night.

We now have a group MMSI (031600053). The number that they have given us is nine digits but the manual for my radio indicates that group numbers are eight digits. I’m guessing that we drop the leading zero when entering it into the radio. This is not to be used as your own personal MMSI, each boater with a DSC capable radio must apply for their own number. This is just used for group calling.
