Once you have your MMSI, you have to program it into your radio.

What is the make and model of your radio?  Did you RTM?

Yeah, just Google the manual for your radio and it will tell you how to do it.  They're all different, so the manual helps.

press menu and work through the options.  That's the radio I have and it's very easy once you find the menu.

Did you buy the radio or was it already in the boat but missing the manual?  If you bought it, the manual should've came with the radio.  If not then yeah, you'll have to google it.

I have the same one also and it's pretty easy to follow once you enter the MMSI # and then follow the menu directions on the radio itself.  Let us know if you can't find the manual and still need info from it.  I think I still have mine somewhere.

It was already on the boat, I think I found the manual. I will give a try later today, and let you guys know.

RTM = Read the Manual

Variant: RTFM

What does RTFM mean ?

People are most likely not replying to you because they think you're playing dumb for some silly reason since everyone and their mother knows what the most common word in the entire galactic quadrant that begins with F is..........usually followed by "you" in most cases.  Much more common than "Father" or the way things are going these days and the clown-in-chief's favorite word "FAKE" almost exclusively followed by "news" and even more common and popular than another of today's generation favorites in FAIL! :dancinguy:
