          That isn't the MMSI home page.... that's the Power Squadron.

          The FCC actually issues MMSI numbers: http://"http://wireless.fcc.gov/serv...%20a%20License

            The United States Power Squadrons is authorized by the Federal Communications Commission and the US Coast Guard to issue MMSIs to US flagged vessels not subject to Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention requirements. This includes almost all recreational boats.

            Vessels required to have FCC ship station licenses, including US flagged pleasure craft making international voyages, must obtain their MMSIs directly from the Federal Communications Commission.

            Our Canadian friends can obtain MMSIs from Industry Canada / Industrie Canada.

                Here is Coast Guard Rear Admiral R. E. Day (Feb. 23, 2011):

                "Of the roughly 100 digital selective calling distress alerts we are now receiving each month, approximately nine out of 10 do not have position information (i.e. do not have a GPS navigation receiver interconnected to their DSC-equipped VHF radio), and approximately six out of 10 have not registered their MMSI. Despite the promises DSC technology offers in significantly reducing the alerting and search time for mariners in distress, there's little a Coast Guard watchstander can do after receiving a distress alert with no position information, using an unregistered MMSI, and having no follow-up voice communications."

                Boaters, this is a serious problem. Please provide the information the Coast Guard needs to rescue you in an emergency

                I used the Boat US website. It literally took 10 mins.

                  I got my MMSI from BoatUS - I dont know if it is "registered" or not, I suspect not if he means registered with the CG.

                  I cannot fathom why someone would put a fake number into it since they are free for the asking.
