Ray49E Marine VHF Radio
Important Information
Licensing
Prior to using your Ray49E, please check your national requirements for both
operators and equipment licensing.
Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI)
The Ray49E includes equipment for Class “D” Digital Selective Calling (DSC). A
nine-digit Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) number is required to operate
the DSC equipment. In some areas, a radio operator license is required before an
MMSI number will be issued.
Note: You can request an MMSI number from the same agency that issues radio or Ship
Radio licences in your area. Once obtained, you can program the MMSI number into your
Ray49E as described in this handbook.
Group MMSI ID
A Group ID MMSI number can also be entered for vessels that are part of a group,
such as a flotilla or racing fleet, enabling DSC communications within the group.
Automatic Transmitter Identification System (ATIS)
If you purchased your Ray49E to include use on the inland waterways of the
contracting governments of the “Regional Arrangement Concerning the
Radiotelephone Service on Inland Waterways”— also known as the Basel
Agreement 1 — your Ray49E will be programmed by your dealer to include
Automatic Transmitter Identification System (ATIS) functionality. ATIS includes
data at the end of radio transmission that identifies your station. ATIS operation
can be turned on or off as needed via the radio’s Menu mode.
Your ATIS ID number is derived from your vessel’s call sign. If your call sign is
suitable, your authorized Raymarine dealer can assist you in decoding your ATIS
ID number, which you can then program into your Ray49E using the operation
described on page 50.
1.The Basel Agreement includes Germany, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, France,
Hungary, Luxembourg, Moldova, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Russian Federation,
the Slovak Republic, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Ukraine and the Federal Republic
of Yugoslavia.
Important Information
11
Note: When ATIS is enabled, certain programming steps have been implemented to pro-
tect the integrity of the Basel Agreement, including the blocking of DSC functions when
ATIS is active. See “ATIS Function“ on page 53.
Safety Notices
Your Raymarine VHF radio generates and radiates radio frequency (RF)
electromagnetic energy (EME). This equipment must be installed and operated in
accordance with the instructions contained in this handbook. Failure to do so can
result in personal injury and/or product malfunction.
Antenna Mounting and EME Exposure
For optimal radio performance and minimal human exposure to radio frequency
electromagnetic energy, make sure the antenna is:
• located at least 1.5 meters (5 feet) from the radio
• connected to the radio before transmitting
This system has a Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE) Radius of 1.5 meters,
assuming the maximum power of the radio and antennas with a maximum gain
of 3dBi. Accounting for the height of an average adult (2 meters) the minimum
height of the antenna above the deck to meet RF exposure compliance
requirements is 3.5 meters. Antennas with more gain require a greater MPE
radius. Do not transmit when anyone is within the MPE radius of the antenna,
unless shielded from the antenna field by a grounded metallic barrier.
WARNING: Maximum Permissible Exposure
Failure to observe these guidelines may expose those within the
maximum permissible exposure (MPE) radius to RF radiation
absorption that exceeds the MPE limit. It is the operator’s
responsibility to ensure that no one comes within this radius.
WARNING: Microwave Radiation
Operators with cardiac pacemakers, electric-medical equipment
and life support machines should not be exposed to microwave
radiation.
CAUTION: Antenna Connection
Never operate the radio unless it is connected to the antenna.
Safe Compass Distance
Safe Compass Distance is 1 meter for a common compass. To be sure, you should
locate the radio as far as possible from the compass. Test your compass to verify
proper operation while the radio is also operating.

The Ray49E marine VHF radiotelephone is a microprocessor-controlled
transceiver that provides reliable simplex (single frequency) and semi-duplex
(two frequency) communications. This handbook describes the physical and
functional characteristics of this radio.
The Ray49E provides two-way communications on all International marine
channels, pre-set private channels, and (if programmed) all US and Canadian
marine and weather channels. Refer to the Frequency Tables in Appendix D,
which list all marine VHF channels available in your radio. You should familiarize
yourself with these tables to ensure proper channel usage.
1.2 Features
The Ray49E is designed and manufactured to provide ease of operation with
excellent reliability. The Ray49E has many enhanced features, including:

Digital Selective Calling (DSC)
The Ray49E includes equipment for Class “D” Digital Selective Calling (DSC). DSC
protocol is a globally applied system used to send and receive digital calls. DSC
uses a unique Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) number to direct DSC calls
directly to your radio, much like a telephone number. Most importantly, DSC
enables digital distress calls that automatically notify other ships and shore
stations where you are and that you are in a distress situation.
Note: An MMSI ID number is required to operate the DSC equipment in this radio. You
can request an MMSI number from the same agency that issues radio or Ship Radio licences in your area. Once obtained, you can program the MMSI number yourself one time only
using the menu operation described in “My MMSI ID“ on page 87.
The Ray49E includes the following DSC features:
• Separate receiver dedicated to handling DSC Calls on channel 70
• Position Request function sends GPS position data to or receives position data
from other stations
• Phonebook for automatically making DSC calls
• Quick Call feature sends Individual Calls or Group Calls directly from the
phonebook, just like the redial function on a telephone
• Three Group IDs for making DSC Calls only to stations in your group, such as a
flotilla or fishing fleet
DSC functions are fully described in Chapter 5.

2.2 Planning the Installation
Mount the transceiver to allow easy access from the location where the boat is
normally navigated. Select a location that is non-metallic, dry, protected, wellventilated, and free from high operating temperatures and excessive vibration.
Provide sufficient space behind the transceiver to allow for proper cable
connections to the rear panel connectors. Locate the transceiver as near as
possible to the power source yet as far apart as possible from any devices that
may cause interference such as motors, generators, and other on board
electronics. The radio should be protected from prolonged direct exposure to rain
and salt spray.
The Ray49E is not designed to be mounted in engine compartments. Do not install
the radio in a location where there may be flammable vapors (such as in an engine
room or compartment, or in a fuel tank bay), water splash or spray from bilges or
hatches, where it is at risk from physical damage from heavy items (such as hatch
covers, tool boxes, etc.), or where it might be covered by other equipment.
Locate the radio at least 1.5 meters from the antenna.
Safe Compass Distance is 1 meter for a common compass. To be sure, you should
locate the radio as far as possible from the compass. Test your compass to verify
proper operation while the radio is also operating.

The ends of the external speaker wires are clipped at the factory so that no bare
metal is exposed. You must strip back the insulation before installation. If you are
not connecting an external speaker, leave the wires insulated. If you have stripped
back a wire that you will not be connecting, clip the bare wire down to the
insulation.

Ray49E Marine VHF Radio
Power
The red and black Power Cord provides connection to DC power. Slide the bullet
connectors on the cord into their mates (with the same colored wire) on the rear
of the radio. Connect the stripped wires on the Power Cord to the nearest primary
source of the boat's DC power. A suitable source would be a circuit breaker on the
power panel or a fuse block near the unit, rated at 10 amps. Connect the red wire
to the positive terminal of the power source and the black wire to the negative
(ground) of the power source. The red and black wires each contain an in-line fuse
rated at 10A, 250V, slow-blow. If the fuses ever need to be replaced, be sure to use
the same type and rating.
The power cord must be long enough to reach the DC power source. If additional
wire length is required, the cable can be extended by adding more cable as
necessary. However, for power cable runs longer than 15 feet, larger wire
diameter size should be used to prevent voltage line loss. To ensure adequate
current draw to the equipment, Raymarine recommends that you use lugs to
connect the power cable to the DC supply and that the lug connections be both
crimped and soldered.
The Ray49E is designed to be operated on a 12 volt (nominal) system. If battery
voltage drops below 10.5 VDC,
BATTERY LOW appears on the LCD. Discontinue using the radio if a low voltage condition occurs as performance would be
unreliable. If voltage increases to 15.8 VDC,
BATTERY HIGH appears.
External Speaker
Connect the yellow(+) wire and green (–) wire to the speaker observing polarity
as it is marked on the speaker.
NMEA Data
The Ray49E accepts NMEA 0183 (V3.01) data from a position determining device
(GPS) to provide the Latitude and Longitude position information. This
information appears on the radio’s LCD display and is also transmitted during a
DSC Distress Call. When a valid NMEA signal is detected, the “GPS” indicator
appears on the LCD. When no NMEA signal is detected, the indicator shows “NO
GPS”.
Connect the NMEA OUT + and NMEA OUT – signals from the positioning device
to the NMEA IN + (gray) and NMEA IN – (purple) wires, respectively, from the
radio. An example of how to make the connections using a suitable connector
block is shown in the following drawing. For specific instructions how to connect
your particular GPS, please refer to the handbook that came with that device.

NMEA Alarm
When no valid position data is available, the NMEA alarm sounds (provided that
the MMSI number has been programmed): the GPS satellite icon flashes and NO
POS DATA is displayed on the dot matrix display. The alert tone sounds for 5
seconds or until you acknowledge it by pressing any key. The alarm repeats every
four hours, as long as the condition exists.
If desired, you can manually enter time and position data using the GPS/Time
Setup feature, as described on page 46. The alert repeats every four hours as long
as no position information has been entered manually. If position data is entered
manually but has not been updated during the previous 23.5 hours, all the
position (lat/lon) fields are set to all 9’s, time field is set to all 8’s, and the display
reverts to NO POS DATA.
Antenna
Raymarine recommends that you install a VHF Marine band antenna with a
minimum height of 8 ft. and gain of at least 3 dBi.
The coaxial VHF antenna cable connects to the Ray49E antenna jack on the rear
panel using a PL-259 VHF type connector. The antenna cable length can be critical
to performance. If you are uncertain, contact a professional installer or call
Raymarine Product Support. If a longer cable length is required, RG-8x (50 ohm)
marine coaxial cable or equivalent cable can be used for runs up to a maximum of
50 feet. If the distance required is even greater, Raymarine recommends using low
loss RG-213 or equivalent cable for the entire run to avoid excessive losses in
power output.
If the antenna RF connector is likely to be exposed to the marine environment, a
protective coating of silicon grease (Dow Corning DC-4 or similar) can be applied
to the connector before connecting it to the radio. Any other extensions or
adapters in the cable run should also be protected by grease and then wrapped
with a waterproofing tape.

Ray49E Marine VHF Radio
Antenna Mounting Suggestions
Mounting the VHF antenna properly is very important because it will directly
affect the performance of your VHF radio. Use a VHF antenna designed for marine
vessels. Since VHF transmission is essentially line-of-sight, mount the antenna at
a location on the vessel that is free of obstruction to obtain maximum range.
If you must extend the length of the coaxial cable between the antenna and the
radio, use a coaxial cable designed for the least amount of power loss over the
entire cable length.
For optimal radio performance and minimal human exposure to radio frequency
electromagnetic energy, make sure the antenna is:
• mounted as high as possible, but at least located at least 1.5 meters (5 feet)
from the radio
• connected to the radio before transmitting
WARNING: Antenna Mounting and EME Exposure
Ensure that the antenna is mounted so that no one can enter the
maximum permissible exposure radius for RF radiation. See the
Safety Notice entitled “Antenna Mounting and EME Exposure“ on
page 11.
Grounding
While special grounding is not generally required for VHF radiotelephone
installations, it is good marine practice to properly ground all electronic
equipment to the boat’s earth ground system. The Ray49E can be connected to
ground by installing the supplied screw and lock washer into the threaded hole
labelled with the icon, located on the transceiver’s rear panel, adjacent to the
antenna jack. Then attach a #10 AWG wire from this screw to the nearest ship’s
earth ground connection point.
CAUTION: Do not connect this ground connection to the negative
terminal of the battery.

4.4 ATIS Operation
If you purchased your Ray49E to include use on the inland waterways of the
contracting governments of the Basel Agreement, your radio has been
programmed by your dealer to include Automatic Transmitter Identification
System (ATIS) functionality. (The Basel Agreement includes Germany, Austria,
Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, France, Hungary, Luxembourg, Moldova, the
Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Russian Federation, the Slovak Republic,
Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Ukraine and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia.)
This section describes how to setup and activate ATIS in your radio.
My ATIS ID
ATIS includes data at the end of radio transmission that identifies your station.
Your ATIS ID number is derived from your vessel’s call sign. If your call sign is
suitable, your authorized Raymarine dealer can assist you in decoding the
number. You can then program the ATIS number into your Ray49E using the
operation described in this section. If regulations in your area do not permit you to
Chapter 4: Menu Settings
51
program the ATIS number yourself, you can have your dealer program the number
for you.
Note: The ATIS ID number is a ten digit number, beginning with a “9”. The MY ATIS set
up process has you input only the last 9 digits. The leading “9” is automatically input for
you but does not appear on the display.
This is a one time operation. After the ATIS number has been programmed:
• you will not be able to change it, only your dealer/distributor can do this
• accessing this menu item will display the programmed ATIS number
To enter or view the ATIS ID number:
1. From the Main Menu item, point to ATIS OPS.
2. Press CH/OK to select. The ATIS OPS menu items appear with the arrow pointing to MY ATIS ID.
3. Press CH/OK to select MY ATIS ID.
If an existing ATIS ID is stored, the value appears. If the ATIS ID is blank,
dashes appear, indicating that one has yet to be entered.
4. To enter the ATIS ID number, rotate the CH/OK knob to display the first digit in
the ATIS ID. (Actually, this is the second digit in the number, as the initial “9”
has automatically been input for you but is not displayed.)
5. Press in CH/OK to confirm and move on to the next position.
6. Continue in this manner until all numbers have been selected.
A more-detailed description of manual character entry can be found in “Adding a new Entry“ on page 68.
7. When all digits have been selected, press CH/OK to accept.
8. Press and hold in CH/OK to confirm. You are prompted to re-enter the ID.
9. Re-enter all the digits in the ATIS ID.
If the second entry does not match the first entry, a warning message is displayed and you are prompted to press BACK, and then retry.
10. Press CH/OK to accept.
11. When complete, press and hold CH/OK to confirm.
12. Press CH/OK one last time to save the ID number and return to the ATIS OPS
screen.

Chapter 5: Digital Selective Calling (DSC)
The Ray49E includes equipment for Class “D” Digital Selective Calling (DSC). DSC
protocol is a globally applied system used to send and receive digital calls. DSC
uses a unique Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) number to direct DSC calls
directly to your radio, much like a telephone number.
Note: An MMSI number is required to operate the DSC equipment in this radio. You can
request an MMSI number from the same agency that issues radio or Ship Radio licences in
your area. Once obtained, you can program the MMSI number yourself one time only using
the operation described in “My MMSI ID“ on page 87. Otherwise, your Raymarine dealer
can program or change the number for you.
The Ray49E includes a separate dedicated receiver just for DSC communications
on channel 70. When a DSC call is received, the radio automatically responds
based on the type of call. When receiving a DSC call from another vessel or a coast
station, an alert sounds and DSC data appears in the LCD–such as time of a call,
the caller and the type and priority of a call.
Note: If you purchased your Ray49E to include use on the inland waterways of the con-
tracting governments of the “Regional Arrangement Concerning the Radiotelephone Service on Inland Waterways”—also known as the Basel Agreement—your radio will be
programmed by your dealer to include Automatic Transmitter Identification System (ATIS)
functionality. If ATIS has been enabled, certain programming steps have been implemented to protect the integrity of this agreement, including the blocking of DSC functions when
ATIS is active. See “ATIS Function“ on page 53.

DSC Call
Type
Description
DISTRESS
Sends out your MMSI number and nature of your Distress along with
the position and time information from the input NMEA data. This digital information lets other ships and shore stations equipped with
appropriate DSC equipment know where you are and that you are in a
Distress situation. Distress Calls are made using the DISTRESS key.
INDIVIDUAL
Makes a ROUTINE DSC call to a specific station identified by its MMSI
number.
GROUP
Sends transmissions that are only received by radios sharing a common Group MMSI number. Up to 3 Group MMSI numbers can be
stored and called.
ALL SHIPS
Sends out a message to all stations within range that you have important information but the situation is not serious enough for a Distress
Call. All Ships calls should only be used if hailing for assistance on
channel 16 fails. There are two types of All Ships Calls: SAFETY for
advisory alerts and URGENCY for assistance when life is not in immediate danger.
POSITION
REQUEST
This option enables you to request GPS position information from any
vessel for which an MMSI number is known. You can specify the target
vessel either by selecting it from your MMSI phonebook or by manually entering its MMSI number. You can also be requested to send out
your position to someone else.
RECEIVED
CALLS
Three separate logs listing all received DSC Call types by number and
time of call. Entries are separated into the following: Distress Log, Call
Log for all other types of DSC Calls, and Position Log.
NOTE: You can place a call directly from a log to the station that is currently displayed. You can also add the displayed station to the DSC
Phonebook.
Note: To conform with regulations of the Basel Agreement for radiotelephone service on
inland waterways, DSC functions are disabled when ATIS is active. Please see “ATIS Function“ on page 53.
Making DSC Menu and Programming Selections
There are two ways to make DSC menu and character selections in your radio:
1. Most examples in this chapter describe making selections using the CH/OK
knob on the transceiver.
2. However, you can also press the microphone up/down keys to make your
selections and then press the microphone HI/LO key to accept.

Chapter 5: Digital Selective Calling (DSC)
5.2 Distress Calls
For a Distress Call transmission, the Ray49E takes the position and time
information from the input NMEA data along with your MMSI and converts it into
a digital “packet”. When transmitted, this digital information lets other ships and
shore stations equipped with appropriate DSC equipment know where you are
and that you are in a Distress situation.
Your call can specify the nature of the Distress (designated call) or not
(undesignated call).

POSITION. Cancel my distress alert of DATE, TIME, NAME, CALL SIGN.”
Receiving a Distress Call
The Ray49E receives distress messages sent by another vessel and/or
acknowledgments (ACK) sent by a coast station to another vessel in distress. The
radio also receives distress relays.
Note: Class “D” DSC radios such as the Ray49E are forbidden by law from automatically
acknowledging or relaying DSC distress calls. Upon receiving a distress call, you may hail
the vessel in distress on channel 16 and standby to lend assistance if requested.
When a Distress Call is received, the Ray49E automatically tunes to channel 16
and sounds the Distress Alarm Tone. (If you have disabled automatic channel
changing, as described on page 89, you are first prompted whether to accept the
call.)
Two alternating screens appear in the display. When position data and time is
included within the signal, it is displayed on the first screen in the text area of the
LCD. The second screen shows the nature of the distress and time it was sent.
The 2 alternating pages of data are recorded in the Distress Log. The envelope
icon ( ) blinks until you accept the call, reject the call, or open the resulting
unread message stored in the Log. See page “Received Calls (Logs)“ on page 84.
To mute the alert tone:
Press CLEAR.
To ignore the Distress Call:
Press CLEAR a second time. The envelope icon disappears, the call is interrupted
and the normal screen appears on the LCD.

5.4 Individual Calls
The Ray49E can make Individual Routine calls.
Making DSC Calls to Coast Stations
The examples in this handbook illustrate making DSC calls to Ship Stations.
However, the procedures for making Individual Calls to a Coast Station are
different. Calls to a Ship Station require that you enter a subsequent working
channel chosen from a pre-programmed list offered to you by the Ray49E. Calls to
a Coast Station remove this step from the operating procedures. The Coast
Station controls and indicates the subsequent working channel within its
acknowledgement.
The Ray49E automatically detects the correct procedures for you based on the
type of MMSI number you enter manually or with or the phonebook. If “00” is
detected as the first two characters of the MMSI, Coast Station procedures are
implemented automatically.
Note: When making a call to a coast station, you will not be asked to select a working
channel because that will be provided by the coast station.
Transmitting an Individual Call
To make an Individual Call to a ship or coast station, you must select the specific
MMSI number to contact and the working channel to be used for the call. The
MMSI ID can be entered manually or selected from a Phonebook list of
preprogrammed numbers specified using the MENU function, as follows:
1. From the DSC menu, rotate the CH/OK knob until the arrow points to INDIVIDUAL.
2. Press CH/OK. The Individual Routine menu appears, which displays any
Phonebook entries you have saved and <MANUAL> for manual number
entry.
3. Rotate the CH/OK knob until the arrow points to the desired individual name.

5.8 Received Calls (Logs)
The radio maintains lists of the last received DSC call types by number and time of
call. Separate logs are maintained for the following:
1. Distress (up to 10 entries, per log)
• Distress Log
• Distress ACK Log
• Distress Relay Log
2. Call Log (up to 30 total entries)
• Individual Calls
• All Ship Calls
• Group Calls
3. Position Log
• Last call received
If the calling vessel or station is listed in your DSC Phonebook, the vessel or station
name appears in the display as it is listed. If the caller is not listed in your directory,
the caller’s MMSI ID number appears in the display.
When a DSC Call is received, the envelope icon blinks on the LCD and an asterisk
(*) appears to the left of the appropriate log. The envelope icon and arrow symbol
disappear when the log is opened.
Coast Stations are identified by MMSI ID numbers beginning with”00”. If you
have assigned a name for a Coast Station in the phonebook, a tower symbol ( )
precedes the name field in the log to identify it as such. Similarly, Group Stations
have a single “0” in the initial MMSI number position. If the MMSI ID begins with
any number other than “0”, an anchor symbol ( ) is entered as a prefix to the
name, identifying this as a Ship Station.

Automatic Channel Changing for Incoming Calls
For incoming Distress and All Ships Urgency Calls, this option determines whether
your radio automatically switches to Priority Channel 16 to receive the call or
prompts you to manually accept or decline the channel change.
The default setting is to ENABLE the auto channel change. If set OFF, the
appears on the LCD.
icon
This feature is useful for preventing your radio from automatically switching
channels while you are maintaining a continuous watch on a certain channel (for
example, in a VTS controlled area) or working with other vessels (for example, for
towage).
Note: This feature can disable automatic channel switching for incoming DSC Distress
and All Ships Urgency Calls. If enabled, you are responsible for determining whether manually declining the call is appropriate.
To enable/disable automatic channel change:
1. From DSC SETUP, rotate the CH/OK knob until the arrow points to AUTO CH
CHG.
2. Press the CH/OK knob to accept.
3. Rotate the CH/OK knob until the arrow points to your selection:
• If you accept ON (the default), your Ray49E automatically changes to
channel 16 when a Distress or All Ships Urgency Call is received.
• If you accept OFF, on receipt of a Distress or All Ships Urgency Call you are
presented with brief details of the call and advised that a change to channel 16 has been requested. You can either accept the channel change or
decline, thereby continuing to monitor your current channel. When set
OFF, the
icon appears on the LCD.
If you accept the request, the call is received, a tone sounds and the radio
is changed to channel 16. Pressing any key disables the alarm. If you
ignore the call, after 5 minutes the radio declines the call, records the call
in the Call Log and maintains normal operation.

Intership channels are for communications between ship stations. Intership communications
should be restricted to Channels 6, 8, 72 and 77. If these are not available, the other channels
marked for Intership may be used.
Channel 70 is used exclusively for Digital Selective Calling (DSC) and is not available for regular
voice communications.
Notes:
1. Channel 06 may also be used for communications between ship stations and aircraft engaged in
coordinated search and rescue operations. Ship stations should avoid harmful interference to
such communications on channel 06 as well as to communications between aircraft stations, ice
breakers and assisted ships during ice seasons.
2. Within the European Maritime Area and in Canada, channels 10, 67 and 73 may also be used by
the individual administrations concerned for communication between ship stations, aircraft stations and participating land stations engaged in coordinated search and rescue and anti-pollution operations in local areas. Channels 10 or 73 (depending on location) are also used for the
broadcast of Marine Safety Information by the Maritime and Coast Guard Agency in the UK only.
3. Channel 13 is designated for use on a worldwide basis as a navigation safety communication
channel, primarily for intership navigation safety communications.
4. Channels 15 and 17 may also be used for on-board communications provided the effective radiated power does not exceed 1 Watt.
5. The use of Channels 75 and 76 should be restricted to navigation related communication only
and all precautions should be taken to avoid harmful interference to channel 16. Transmit power
is limited to 1 Watt.
