Re: VHF DSC log for the past 7 days

Yes the Arrow has been in St Helens Road anchorage awaiting orders as its been working out of Portsmouth - I imagine that all calls from what ever CH70 CG receiver is used around the country are routed the the NMOC at Fareham and the equipment votes the site which it was received hence we can both receive it. I live 0.5 mile from the CG radio site at Hill Head next to the Solent.
As for a why the OOW on Arrow has Holyhead MMSI in his machine for a test is perhaps of little consequence as he gets a successful test for his logbook.

Holyhead continues to baffle me though
Yesterday (5th) it was logged with an ACK to the same ship (the
Arrow), MMSI nr 235096892) which was in the same place (the Eastern
Solent) as it was when I logged Holyhead before. It's a long way from
the Solent to Holyhead, and why would anyone in the Solent want to or
need to do a check via Holyhead anyway when Solent CG's on their
