Description: Despite to be one of the most important parts of GMDSS, Digital Selective Calling (DSC) has been the last to be fully implemented. It is not just a distress service. DSC automates routine calling, making marine radio as easy to use as a telephone. As an added benefit DSC carries other information, such as vessel’s identity, position, nature of the call and suggested working channel. Moreover the DSC message is transmitted in one quick burst, reducing the demand time on the calling channel. This ITU Recommendation was issued in 2019 and is currently in force. It describes the digital selective-calling (DSC) system for use in the maritime mobile service, and covers general purpose and simplified versions of DSC equipment. A description of a generalized user interface operation is included in Annex 3, Annex 4 includes an automated procedure for the operation of shipborne equipment.


Annex 1 General Purpose Equipment characteristics
Annex 2 Equipment classes
Annex 3 User interface for simplified operation of shipborne equipment
Annex 4 Automated procedures for simplified operation in shipborne equipment
