Thanks to last week’s Mindbender winner, Tim Kemerley, for his answer to “What does the DSC function on a VHF radio do?” DSC is digital selective calling. If you have entered your MMSI number and have a GPS hooked to your radio when you press the DSC button it sends out a message over channel 70 for a call for help. It tells the Coast Guard who you are and where you are.
