Frank Daringer – Mid-Shore Electronics
Frank will give an informative talk on the usage of Digital Selective Calling (DSC) system.
Frank will bring pelican case with a color chart plotter & VHF wired together to run real time. Since he’ll use a “dummy load” it’s legal per FCC.
We will use actual emergency DSC (distress) to familiarize you with the standard questions you get from GARMIN, ICOM & Standard Horizon when initiating DSC.
He will demonstrate how to private, DSC radio to DSC radio calls using MMSI#’s. He’ll also go over how to use the position tracking feature to track other vessels using each others MMSI#.
Everyone in attendance will have opportunity to use distress DSC button and have experience if it should ever truly “come up”.
This will be an excellent, hands-on informational/training seminar that members will not want to miss.
