Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Inmarsat Mini-M end of life Dec 2016

Hello Trevor,

Inmarsat just told me the Mini-M is extended until Dec 2016.
I was told, it depends on the serial number of your device, mine started with 76TT....
Sincerely, Alexandre

Hi Eric,          I
see that Bill has already picked up on this and is more
likely better informed than me.Any information
that I have comes directly from the Inmarsat website that
statesImarsat B with voice distress which was due
to close December 2014 has now been extended to December
2016. I think that may be Mini M but I'm not
sure.I am please to see with Fleet that they are
now actively promoting the use of the emergency 505 number
which has been around for a while but many people were
unaware of  it. You have a redirected connection to
Holland,USA or Australia in emergencies.Best
