This requirement can be met by:
- a separate MF/HF DSC scanning receiver for distress and safety
DSC frequencies only; or
- a dedicated MF/HF DSC scanning watch receiver for distress and
safety DSC frequencies only combined with the MF/HF radiotelephone.
If DSC operation is desirable on other frequencies, an additional
scanning receiver should be provided.
A single DSC decoder
may be used to serve both the DSC distress and safety frequency scanning
receiver and the additional scanning receiver only if continuous watch
for distress and safety calls can be maintained.
