As you are probably aware, it is mandatory by law to have a MMSI - radio license onboard your vessel at all times if you are travelling outside of the United States territorial waters.
The MMSI (Maritime Mobile Service Identity) is a unique, nine digit number, that is assigned to a DSC radio (Digital Selective Calling) or an AIS unit. Just like a mobile number, a MMSI number is your unique number for a DSC radio or an AIS unit. The information provided when obtaining a MMSI number is registered into the U.S. Coast Guard's national distress database for use in emergency situations.
