How may Inmarsat-C terminals be used for sending Urgency or Safety priority communications (such as synoptic weather reports)?
Urgency & Safety EGC messages can only be received by an Inmarsat-C terminal.
Enter PAN PAN or SECURITE into the heading of the message file so the message will be routed by priority.
Only Routine or Distress priority messages can be sent from an Inmarsat-C terminal.
Use the appropriate special 2-digit codes selected from the address book or manually enter the correct code into the SEND/REC or TRANSMIT menu.
