Description

DSC (Digital Selective Calling) has transformed VHF radio. It means that you can (and I have) call the ship that is coming towards you to draw attention to your presence, and maybe tell him that you will alter course to go astern, or stand on. Then (a) he will know you are there (b) stop worrying about what you will do. You need AIS so you can identify the ship at the range of a few miles, and get its MMMSI number (which is almost like a phone number). The procedures are not straightforward unless you have a very expensive VHF kit. The course is also a sound basis for going on to an SSB course which is probably desirable if you intend to go ocean passaging.
