The ship we will be going on is the Carnival Vista. I gather from looking around on-line that there is a very good chance that they are using ship board repeaters with outputs in the 457 regions, as well as others. Can anybody suggest a good way to find the actual FCC license for the ship that we will be sailing on? I have tried searching the FCC website, but I can't find the Carnival licenses for ships. I did find licenses for land based operations.
Is it possible that they are operating on the authority of the country that they are registered to? Also, is it likely that they will be using MOTO TRBO, since this is a pretty new ship?
EDIT: I just read Cruise Ship & Maritime Monitoring, Part 1 & 2, by Bill Dunn, in the Scanner Digest Newsletter. I know now that looking for an FCC license is an exercise in futility!
