If a GMDSS Radio Operator initiates a DSC Distress transmission but does not insert a message, what happens?
The transmission is aborted and an alarm sounds to indicate this data must be provided by the operator.
The transmission will be made with "default" information provided automatically.
The transmission is not initiated and "ERROR" is indicated on the display readout.
The receiving station will poll the DSC unit of the vessel in Distress to download the necessary information.
