Question about Raymarine Ray55 VHF Radio

Open Question

I have recently bought and fitted a new raymarine 218E vhf radio for my yacht in the UK. Before I can use it I believe I need an MMSI number. The UK MMSi web site suggests the numbers are already programmed in to the radio and do not suggest how to get a new one. Mine doesnt seem to have one programmed in. I am confused. Guidance would be greatly appreciated Cheers Dr frank prior frankprior@aol.com

SOURCE: how to reset mmsi number Raymarine 215

This secret code is for the Raytheon / Raymarine RAY 220 VHF. It may work on other Raytheon/Raymarine radios also.

Here you go:

With the Power OFF, Press and HOLD the FUNC, 16/9 and DSC keys while you power ON. Do not release the keys until you hear the audio BEEP which means your done. Then reprogam your NMSI number as per the manual. Pretty easy, hey?

Entering my MMSI number i can get to the setup screen but won't go to the next step


Has it ever been setup for a MMSI? If so, I think they can only be set once and need to be cleared by the factory to be ready for a "new" MMSI to be entered.

Need to reset mmsi number


I don't think the RAY100 is DSC compatible and therefore doesn't have the MMSI programmed into it. Most manufacturers limited the number of times that the MMSI can be programmed to one (!). After that, it has to got the factory or to an authorized dealer who can bypass the restriction.

Need a replacement cable for ray 230


Hi
For your 230, you need part number R49085 which should be able to be ordered by any Raymarine dealer. On the link below, scroll down to post #8.

Hope this helps you out.

Ihave an old icom icm- 55 marine radio what ariel do i need and do i need to swr the ariel will a cb ariel work basically what do i need to do to get it working


All marine VHF radios must be licensed. A marine radio station must also have a call-sign allocated to the vessel it is installed in. Shore based stations can also be licensed but only where they are involved in marine based activities e.g Yacht Clubs, Marinas, Harbour Masters, Rescue Services etc.
In the UK ships radio licences can be obtained from Ofcom. They are free for non-commercial users.
The user must also have a Marine VHF Radio operators certificate. This requires taking an exam. In the UK contact the Royal Yachting Association for a copy of the syllabus and local examiners.
More information about the licensing rules, courses and exams can be found here. http://www.rya.org.uk/infoadvice/regssafety/Pages/licensingelec.aspx
The ICOM ICM55 is a good radio set and can still be used in an existing (marine) installation but it does not meet the standards for new installations as it does not have DSC (digital selective calling) capabilities - which all new fixed sets must now have. It is therefore very unlikely that you will be able to get a licence to install one.
To get it working you will need a proper marine band VHF aerial which operates in the frequency range 156-MHz. They usually come with cable attached but if a longer cable is needed, or the aerial is not cabled in the first place, use flexible 75 ohm co-axial cable with a copper core and braid/foil screen. Use proper aerial connectors (type F or BC are most commonly used and can be obtained from most good electronic component suppliers more cheaply than from a boat chandlers. Do not use push-fit TV aerial plugs)
Citizens Band radio works on the much lower frequency MHz band and therefore a CB aerial will not work with a marine VHF radio set. Please see this Wikipedia article for more information http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marine_VHF_radio

Need to reset the mmsi


Did you ever solve this problem. I have just purchased a little Leisure 17-SL with a fairly new one of theses radios. I have the handbook and discover you can only program the MMSI once and then return to a dealer to clear it!
Many thanks

Raymarine Ray 240 usa model


You cannot just reprogram your Raymarine to european standard.

This radio has been built and is licenced for using with USA frequency, in Europe his use will be limited to lower bands with no modification.

To be fully adapted to higher bands, the radio must be taken apart, and you need to bridge a contact on the main board.

The use of the radio after modifacion won't be legal in Europe.

I have a Raymarine VHF marine radio but cannot get channel 37 - why not?


Hi,

To my knowledge, Ch 37 (M1) is used by the UK Marinas and Yacht Clubs, however, the Raymarine Ray45VHF uses the US VHF Marine Radio Channels allocations/standard where there is no Ch 37 (actually no Chs 29-59).

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa
