How do I use VHF-DSC?

DSC radios can be used exactly like the traditional marine units, but with additional benefits:

  •     pushbutton distress calling
  •     undesignated distress calling
  •     designated distress calling, such as fire, sinking, etc.
  •     pushbutton hailing
  •     group calling.

This text is written for the recreational boater and is available through International Marine / McGraw-Hill publishers
