Placing All-Ships Calls

All-ships calls are transmitted to all stations within receiving distance of your radio. You can make two types of all-ships calls. Safety calls broadcast significant navigational or weather-related information. Urgency calls communicate situations about the safety of a vessel or person when danger is not imminent. The captain should discern whether a situation warrants a safety call or an urgency call.

  1. Select DSC > ALL SHIPS.
  2. Select SAFETY or URGENCY.
  3. Select a channel (Individual Call or Group Call Channels).

    The radio transmits the channel request with your call.

  4. Select CALL.

    The radio transmits the call on channel 70, then changes to the selected channel.
