i've posted this eralier on in the week in the General non-glock forum with no response. I know it has nothing todo with HAM radio per se but does anybody have any input on DSC?

Anybody have a DSC enable marine radio and if so , is their any real use for this feature ? and what benefits do you get ?

from what I read, alot of us coast guard functions will shift more to dsc and digital selection - IDing. Has it exceptance being good?

Will HAM bae station get some form of DSC enable towards the future ?

There's a fairly useful but dated write up about DSC on West Marine's technical help site. See link below. My understanding in 2004 when I bought a marine radio with DSC for my boat that the DSC feature might be useful by 2006.
