I've just got a Nautilus Lifeline. It says that the red distress button will not work until I have entered my MMSI number. I have followed the link to the ofcom website, but am not really any closer to getting an MMSI allocated.
My understanding is that an MMSI is normally issued for a boat, do I need to find a friendly skipper and use their MMSI, which will at least activate the unit - but what if I then need to use it when I'm on a different boat/diving from shore? Will this not cause confusion and possible delay my rescue?
Anyhow, everyone who has bought one must have this problem (I'm surprised it doesn't come with instructions as to how to sort this out), so hopefully at least one other person out there has got one and worked it out...if that is you, then please can you tell me what I need to do!
