DIGITAL SELECTIVE CALLING
When an optional UX-120 DSC UNIT is installed, digital selective calling (or DSC) can be used via the IC-M59. DSC is a method of radio communications involving digital signals rather than the more conventional method of voice communications. The advantage of using digital communications over voice communications is that information (especially useful for distress calls and other urgent matters) can be preprogrammed into a radio and transmitted accurately. DSC TYPE Distress call In addition, when a GPS receiver (NMEA0183 ver. 1. 5, 2. 0 or 2. 1) is connected, your vessel's position and the current UTC time are transmitted together with the vessel's identity when making a distress call. 27 for unit installation.
DESCRIPTION This sends distress information which includes your vessel's ID (and position data/UTC time when a GPS receiver is connected). DSC acknowledgement will be received from a coast station after making a distress call. This is used to alert Coast stations (or other ships) when a vessel in distress is unable to do so. The IC-M59 can only receive this type of signal; not transmit.
