Notes:  

These are shared with "fixed" stations.  If the frequency is occupied, we must choose another frequency. 
No channel numbers are assigned to these frequencies. They are referred to by the frequency itself, e.g., "...meet you on 8122...".

Global Maritime Distress & Safety System (GMDSS)
Simplex DSC & Radiotelephone Frequencies

DSC VOICE DSC VOICE
2187.51 21821 8414.5 8291
4207.5 4125 12,577 12,290
6312.0 6215 16,804.5 16,420

Notes:  

DSC Frequencies are 'guarded' (monitored) frequencies. They are used for distress, urgency, and safety. Switch to the corresponding voice frequency after the DSC call is made and acknowledged.
Voice frequencies are not normally guarded. They are to be used only for distress, urgency, and safety related communications.
