Changing the Channel to 16 Automatically

By default, the radio changes to channel 16 automatically when receiving distress, distress relay, and all-ships urgency calls. In certain situations, when you must continually monitor a channel to maintain uninterrupted communication with another vessel, for example, you can disable this feature.

  1. Select MENU > DSC > AUTO CHANGE CH..
  2. Select an option:
    • To set the radio to switch automatically to channel 16 when you receive a qualifying call, select ON.

    • To set the radio to prompt you to accept or decline a channel change when you receive a qualifying call, select OFF.
