What's an MMSI

An MMSI (Maritime Mobile Service Identity) is used in conjuction with your VHF radio.  In case of an emergency, VHF radios with DSC (Digital Selective Calling) can transmit a message identifying your problem.  If you're tied in with your GPS, your location will be part of the message.  An MMSI is free.  If you're going to be off-shore or in a large body of water, consider getting one here.
