IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
INSTALLATION NOTE
If your vessel requires assistance, contact other vessels and
the Coast Guard by sending a Distress call on Channel 16.
The installation of this equipment should be made in such a
manner as to respect the EC recommended electromagnetic
field exposure limits (1999/519/EC).
USING CHANNEL 16
DISTRESS CALL PROCEDURE
1. “MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY.”
2. “THIS IS ...............” (name of vessel)
3.Your call sign or other indication of the vessel (AND
9-digit DSC ID if you have one).
4. “LOCATED AT ...............” (your position)
5.The nature of the distress and assistance required.
6.Any other information which might facilitate the rescue.
Or, transmit your Distress call using digital selective calling
on Channel 70.
USING DIGITAL SELECTIVE CALLING (Ch 70)
DISTRESS CALL PROCEDURE
1.W h i l e l i f t i n g u p t h e key c ove r, p u s h a n d h o l d
[DISTRESS] for 5 sec. until you hear 5 short beeps
change to one long beep.
2.Wait for an acknowledgment on Channel 70 from a
coast station.
• After the acknowledgement is received, Channel 16 is
automatically selected.
3.Push and hold [PTT], then transmit the appropriate
information as listed above.
The maximum RF power available from this device is 25
watts. The antenna should be installed as high as possible
for maximum efficiency and that this installation height
should be at least 5 meters above ground (or accessible)
level. In the case where an antenna cannot be installed at
a reasonable height, then the transmitter should neither be
continuously operated for long periods if any person is within
5 meters of the antenna, nor operated at all if any person is
touching the antenna.
In all cases any possible risk depends on the transmitter
being activated for long periods. (Actual recommendation
limits are specified as an average of 6 minutes) Normally the
transmitter is not active for long periods of time. Some radio
licenses will require that a timer circuit automatically cuts the
transmitter after 1–2 minutes etc.
Similarly some types of transmitter, SSB, CW, AM, etc. have
a lower ‘average’ output power and the perceived risk is even
lower.
