AIS TRANSPONDER
3
When the optional MA-500TR CLASS B AIS TRANSPONDER is
connected to your transceiver, an individual DSC call can be
transmitted to a selected AIS target, without needing to enter
the target’s MMSI code. In this case, the call type is automati-
cally set to Routine.
See page 7 for connecting instructions.
To ensure correct operation of the DSC function, make
sure you correctly set the CH70 SQL LEVEL. See (¤5) of
the HM-195 instruction manual.
