  2. Me too! We can hardly wait to get our hands on one and give it a proper stress-test here in crowded Puget Sound.

  3. If you had a DSC enabled VHF you could have placed a call to the other vessel’s bridge using their MMSI, no?

    It may have been that the AIS was ‘hearing itself’ when it transmitted so CE had no way to know that it was you — I don’t remember a ‘Ignore my MMSI’ feature in CE, but it might be a useful one to add.
