SailMail Application for Membership or Renewal

To use SailMail’s radio network, you must have a current marine callsign for your vessel. Use of our US-licensed shore stations is limited to recreational vessels.  You will also need to download and print  copies of the FCC Licenses for the US SailMail stations, and keep the copies aboard.

If your vessel is registered in the US, make sure your FCC callsign is current, and that your “Generic Ship Class” is “PL” for Pleasure.  You can check at

If you are a US registered vessel and do not yet have your FCC callsign or need to renew it, you can easily apply online at the website.

If registered in another country, make sure your callsign has the correct prefix for the country of your vessel’s registration.  You can check at

When you have confirmed that you have a proper marine callsign from the country of your vessel’s registration to use the radio network, click below to register.
