DSC Transmission Acknowledgments

Email

ShipCom provides radio email service via HF SSB radio. The ShipCom system supports SITOR, AMTOR, PACTOR and PACTOR II. No special software is needed to access the ShipCom email system. Vessels equipped with GMDSS HF SITOR may send email via the ShipCom system using the SITOR terminal. Special software now enables crew members on any vessel to setup an account with ShipCom which will allow them to access Internet email via the ship's SITOR system without any charges being incurred by the vessel. Vessels equipped with Pactor and Pactor II modes of transmission enjoy faster throughput and the full ascii character set. The ShipCom email system also offers weather, news and sports information.

To access the ShipCom email system, simply tune your radio to the appropriate frequency as found under frequencies on this web site. For SITOR/AMTOR modes place an ARQ call to 1090 (XVSV). For Pactor modes, Pactor call WLO-1. .

Fax

Vessels using ShipCom's SITOR or Pactor systems may send text messages to any fax machine world wide. Messages are composed on the ship's SITOR terminal and are sent to any fax machine using the send fax command. While it is possible to send a fax message from Shore to Ship on suitably equipped vessels, ShipCom does not recommend this practice as delivery is usually difficult and the sender is charged for failed delivery attempts.

Satellite

ShipCom can send messages to any satellite terminal in the world. Messages may be billed to Visa, Master Card, Discover, American Express or to your home or business telephone. Messages to satellite terminals should be addressed to wloradio@wloradio.com and must include the Vessel name, radio callsign, MMSI and the satellite number if known.

Telex

Vessels equipped with SITOR can send directly connected Telex messages to any telex terminal in the world. Vessels can also send store and forward Telex messages. Store and forward Telex messages are less expensive and usually arrive within minutes of transmission. Telex messages may be sent from shore to ship by sending the telex to 6827072 or 505444. The message should include the Ship Name and Radio Callsign and MMSI number. Telex messages may also be sent by emailing to wloradio@wloradio.com. The email containing the Telex message should also contain the Ship Name, Radio Callsign and MMSI number. ShipCom will deliver Telex messages via radio or satellite to the vessel. Parties sending Telex messages sent with PC (paid confirmation) will receive notification of successful delivery of the message to the Ship.

Weather

ShipCom transmits hourly weather and traffic list on selected ITU HF SSB voice channels. For a schedule of the weather products and broadcast times see the frequencies page. Virtually any weather product is available via ShipCom's HF SITOR / Pactor system on demand. All ShipCom weather products are automatically updated from the National Weather Service. Vessels sending AMVER and OBS messages are entitled to receive free weather products via SITOR or Pactor. For more information on the AMVER/OBS programs, call our toll free number at 1-800-633-1312.
