DSC Operational Overview
Digital Selective Calling (DSC) is the global calling system adopted by the ITU-R
and IMO for selective calling of coast station and ship radio stations. The DSC
system is used for both safety and routine calling. The GMDSS requires the use
of DSC for distress alerting and safety calls.
1.3.1
LED warnings
The LED below the DISTRESS key lights continuously when the distress signal
is transmitted.
The ALARM LED blinks in red (and alarm sounds) when a distress or urgent
message is received. The LED can be extinguished and alarm silenced by
pressing the CANCEL key.
The ALARM LED blinks in green (and alarm sounds) when a message other
than distress or urgent is received. Alarm is automatically silenced two minutes
after message is received.

the handset of the main unit. When you hook off the handset of the main unit,
“OCCUPIED FM8800” (default. This may be change. See section 5.3) is
indicated on all remote stations.
Each remote station has its own priority. The remote station ID (1-4) indicates its
priority. The priority of the system is as follows.
DSC of main unit > Wing handset > Handset of main unit > 1 > 2 > 3 > 4
If you hook off No.4 remote station, for example, “Occupied Handset.4” is
displayed on other remote stations. However, you can hook off and use No.1
handset.

Receiving Distress Alert from Other Vessel,
Transmitting DIST ACK Signal
In no case is a ship permitted to transmit a DSC distress relay call upon receipt
of a DSC distress alert on VHF channel 70.
Procedure when in area A1
1. When the FM-8800D/8800S receives a distress alert from another vessel, the

alarm.
2. Silence the alarm by pressing the CANCEL key.
3. Wait up to five minutes until the DIST ACK signal from a coast station is
received. Be prepared to follow the instructions of the coast station.
4. If you do not receive the DIST ACK signal, follow the flow chart shown on
page 2-8 to determine if your vessel should acknowledge a distress alert.
If further DSC alerts are received from the same source and the ship in distress
is beyond doubt in the vicinity, a DSC acknowledgement may, after consultation
with an Rescue Co-ordination Center (RCC) or Coast Station, be sent to
terminate the distress call.
Note 1: An asterisk (*) in a received distress alert message indicates error or
unknown at the location marked with the asterisk.
Note 2: Do not send DIST ACK in response to receipt of distress alert having the
nature of distress as “EPIRB emission”.
