SCAN
Scan (ALL SCAN & 3CH SCAN)
There are two SCAN modes you can use to find the broadcast channel:
•
ALL SCAN mode scans ALL channels in sequence, and checks the priority
channel every 2 seconds.
•
3CH SCAN mode scans the favorite channels and CH16.
When a signal is received, scanning stops at that channel and BUSY appears on the
LCD. If the signal ceases for more than 5 seconds, the scan restarts.
Press SCAN or PTT to stop at the current channel.
If you are in NAVIGATION mode and want to scan the DSC channels while staying in
that mode, just hold down SCAN.
Note: SCAN functionality is limited in some European countries and, if ATIS mode is
enabled, the 3CH SCAN mode will be disabled and an error beep will sound.
Note: The weather channel is also scanned if TONE ALERT or SAME is ON (US only).
ALL SCAN mode:
Hold down SCAN for about 3 seconds to start an ALL SCAN. ALL SCAN appears on the
LCD.
Press ENT to temporarily skip over (lock out) an “always busy” channel when in ALL
SCAN mode. SKIP is shown on the top line of the LCD to designate a skipped
channel. SKIP will disappear when the radio is powered OFF/ON. With scanning OFF
and the SKIP channel selected, press ENT to cancel the skipped channel.
Note: It is not possible to skip over the priority channel.
Press SCAN to stop at the current channel.
Press EXIT to cancel scan mode and return to normal operation.

3-6 GPS data and time (GPS/DATA)
If the boat has an operational GPS navigation receiver and is connected by NMEA port, the
VHF radio automatically detects and updates the vessel position and the local time.
However, if the GPS navigation receiver is disconnected or absent, you can specify the vessel
position and the local time manually, using the GPS/DATA option.
This information is important because it will be used if a DSC distress call is transmitted.
• If GPS data is NOT available for some reason, the NO GPS alert will sound for 5 seconds (or
until you press any key) and the radio requests you to enter the position data manually
• This request is repeated every 4 hours if you do not enter the position data manually.
After you have entered the position data manually, you must update it within 23.5 hours
otherwise the NO GPS alert sequence repeats
• The NO GPS warning will be shown whenever GPS data is not available from an operational
GPS navigation receiver.

4-8 Weather alerts (WX ALERT)
US model only.
Use WX ALERT to set your preferences for weather alert information.
The NOAA provides several weather forecast channels on USA and Canadian channel banks.
If severe weather such as storms or hurricanes are forecast, the NOAA broadcasts a weather
alert on 1050 Hz.
The NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio Service (NWR) works in conjunction with the
Emergency Alert System (EAS) to issue weather alerts for specific geographic areas or specific
weather conditions. It uses a digital encoding system known as SAME (Specific Area Message
Encoding) to broadcast these alerts.
Each transmitter in the NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio Service (NWR) network is identified
with a unique 6-digit SAME code. Each transmitter operates on one of 7 frequencies.
Note: To activate a SAME alert, a SAME CODE (county ID) must be selected and turned ON
(see section 4-8-2).
4-8-1 TONE ALERT
If TONE ALERT is ON and an alert tone of 1050 Hz is broadcast from the NOAA weather
station, the weather alert is picked up automatically and the alarm sounds. Press any key to
cancel the alarm and to hear the weather alert message.

usually transmitted between 1000 and 1200 (10.00AM and noon) every Wednesday.
Note: If there is a threat of severe weather, the test is postponed until the next good weather
day.
If your WX ALERT setup is working correctly, the alert sounds and TEST is displayed on the
LCD, followed by a broadcast message from the National Weather Service.
4-8-5 Enter a SAME CODE (County ID)
If you want to receive SAME weather alerts, you must enter and then Select a SAME code for
your geographic area into your radio. You can enter a maximum of 4 SAME codes (4 counties)
in your geographic area.
Telephone 1-888-NWR-SAME (1-888-697-7263) or visit www.nws.noaa.gov/nwr/indexnw.htm

Section 8 - Sending and receiving DSC calls
WARNING
A valid USER MMSI must be entered into this radio before these DSC functions can be
used. See section 5-1.
8-1 What is DSC?
DSC (Digital Selective Calling) is a semi-automated method of establishing VHF, MF, and HF
radio calls. It has been designated as an international standard by the IMO (International
Maritime Organization) and is part of the GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety
System).
Currently, you are required to monitor Distress Channel 16, but DSC will eventually replace
listening watches on distress frequencies and will be used to broadcast routine and urgent
maritime safety information.
DSC enables you to send and receive calls from any vessel or coast station that is equipped
with DSC functionality and within geographic range. Calls can be categorized as distress,
urgency, safety, or routine, and DSC selects a working channel automatically.
8-2 Sending DSC Calls
You can call any other person that has another DSC equipped radio.
• Quick press the CALL / MENU key to access the following DSC CALL menu options – select
LAST CALL to quickly call back the person who called you.
• Note that only four DSC CALL menu options can be shown on the LCD at any one time.
• Press + or – on the microphone or turn the Channel Select knob on the base station to
scroll up or down through the menu until the cursor is positioned at the desired option.
Press ENT (the center of the Channel Select knob) to display that option.

Section 10 - AIS functionality
CAUTION
Valid GPS data must be entered into this radio before the AIS functions can be used. The
plotter PPI function will not display targets accurately with incorrect GPS data.
10-1 About AIS
The marine Automatic Identification System (AIS) is a location and vessel information
reporting system. It allows vessels equipped with AIS to automatically and dynamically share
and regularly update their position, speed, course and other information such as vessel
identity with similarly equipped vessels. Position is derived from the Global Positioning
System (GPS) and communication between vessels is by Very High Frequency (VHF) digital
transmissions.
There are a number of types of AIS device as follows:
• Class A transceivers. These are similar to class B transceivers, but they are designed to be
fitted on large vessels such as cargo ships and large passenger vessels. Class A transceivers
transmit at a higher VHF signal power than class B transceivers and therefore can be
received by more distant vessels, and also transmit more frequently. Class A transceivers
are mandatory on all vessels over 300 gross tonnes on international voyages and certain
types of passenger vessels under the SOLAS regulations.
• Class B transceivers. Similar to class A transceivers in many ways, but are normally lower
cost due to the less stringent performance requirements. Class B transceivers transmit at
a lower power and at a lower reporting rate than class A transceivers.
• AIS base stations. AIS base stations are used by Vessel Traffic Systems to monitor and control
the transmissions of AIS transceivers.
• Aids to Navigation (AtoN) transceivers. AtoNs are transceivers mounted on buoys or other
hazards to shipping which transmit details of their location to the surrounding vessels.
• AIS receivers. AIS receivers will generally receive transmissions from class A transceivers,
class B transceivers, AtoNs and AIS base stations but do not transmit any information about
the vessel on which they are installed.
This radio contains an AIS receiver only function.
10-2 AIS - Static and dynamic information
Defined transmit rates for Class A vessels shown below are provided for reference purposes
only. The frequency of messages received will vary due to a number of factors including but
not limited to such factors as antenna height, gain and signal interference.
• Static information is either broadcast every 6 minutes, when data has been amended, or
upon request.
62

10-3 Using the AIS receiver
Providing that other vessels with AIS transceivers installed are within radio range of your
vessel, you should see their details appear on the AIS plotter screen. These details are also
repeated on the NMEA ports for display on a compatible chartplotter / MFD.
Specific details of how to configure your chartplotter to make use of the AIS receiver features
will be given in your chartplotter manual. If you are using charting software running on a PC,
please refer to the instructions provided with your chartplotting software for details of how to
configure it to display AIS information.

1.
The transceiver will not power up.
A fuse may have blown or there is no voltage getting to the transceiver.
a) Check the power cable for cuts, breaks, or squashed sections.
b) After checking the wiring, replace the 7 Amp fuse.
c) Check the battery voltage. This must be greater than 10.5V.
2. The transceiver blows the fuse when the power is switched on.
The power wires may have been reversed.
a) Check that the red wire is connected to the positive battery terminal, and the black wire
is connected to the negative battery terminal.
3. The speaker makes popping or whining noises when the engine is running.
Electrical noise may be interfering with the transceiver.
a) Re-route the power cables away from the engine.
b) Add a noise suppressor to the power cable.
c) Use resistive spark plug wires and/or use an alternator whine filter.
4. No sound from the external speaker.
a) Check that the external speaker cable is physically connected.
b) Check the soldering of the external speaker cable.
5. Transmissions are always on low power, even when high (Hi) power is selected.
The antenna may be faulty.
a) Test the transceiver with a different antenna.
b) Have the antenna checked out.
6. Battery symbol is displayed.
The power supply is too low.
a) Check the battery voltage. This should be at least 10.5 V ± 0.5 V DC.
