I Bought a Raymarine AIS 650 tranceiver last year and Defender(I now discover had made an error with the number. They have entered a 5 instead of a 6!

My MMSI number is issued by the UK OFCOM and the vessel is UK registered. I should be able to reprogram the soft wear as a non US vessel but the option is greyed out on the supplied software. Any suggestions?

As you have identified FCC regulations prohibit US customers from resetting the MMSI number once it has been programmed.  Within the US, only FCC certified radio technicians and dealers are permitted to reset MMSI numbers within VHF radios and AIS transceivers.  Should the vessel be registered within the UK as you have specified, then it is recommended that our UK offices be contacted for the application to reset the AIS650's MMSI:

Adding databar block C120

I have (2) E120s on my boat. One of them allows 3 databar blocks of information and the other will only allow 2 blocks. When I try to add data it replaces the highlighted block and doesn't add a new block. How can I increase the number of blocks of information? The manual shows a picture of 4 blocks of information.See More
