Hey Guys & Gals…
I am new to this so bear with me.
I have a river house in the panhandle of FL only accessible by boat. There are only 911 addresses available for this location. There are no communications available except for VHF Radio. I have a Uniden Um380 Fixed Mount Vhf/2-Way Marine Radio with an 8ft Shakespeare antenna about 20 ft in the air.
- Do I need an MMSI?
- Do I need a call sign?
- Since this is a fixed position, do I need to do anything specific with local laws?
- I would like to be able to make and receive phone calls on the VHF. I have read online about this but am unsure of procedures.
Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the help!
