The vessel owner can configure automatic position reports to be sent to a private address, such as to a fleet management company. The vessel can send and receive private e–mail and other messages when the transceiver has such an input device as a laptop or personal computer attached. Vessel owners wishing to use Stratos Global or VIZADA services will need to purchase an Inmarsat–C transceiver approved for the fishery. The owner will need to complete an Inmarsat–C system use contract with Stratos Global or VIZADA, including a mobile earth station license (FCC requirement). The transceiver will need to be commissioned with Inmarsat according to Stratos Global’s or VIZADA instructions. The owner should refer to and follow the configuration, installation, and service activation procedures for the specific transceiver purchased. rmajette on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES III.
