VHF/MF, it's all the same, the site used to transmit a reply is usually

The sooner they move to a single UK Coastguard MMSI the better - not
good for our love of collecting, perhaps, but it makes more sense than
seeing "Belfast's MMSI" coming out of a site on the English Channel?

I'm seeing it a lot now I've started to take a closer look at the
positions of the ships I'm logging on Ch70
