Radio stations on vessels
The right to use radio frequencies for radio stations on ships and other vessels is acquired by means of individual license for the use of radio frequencies issued at the request of the owner or authorized vessel user.
In its Rulebook on the manner of radio station usage on board of national and foreign aircrafts, locomotives, ships and other vessels, RATEL prescribed how to use radio stations on board of national and foreign aircrafts, locomotives, ships and other vessels in accordance with appropriate international agreements and recommendations.
The Automatic Transmitter Identification System (ATIS) is mandatory for all VHF telephone equipment permanently installed on land or on vessels and for portable VHF radio telephone equipment used on inland waterways. The assignment of ATIS/MMSI code is performed by the Agency, based on the submitted call sign from the copy of the decision in which the call sign is assigned.
