distress alerts from the position from which the ship is normally
navigated, operating either:

(2) Through the polar orbiting satellite service on 406.0-406.1 MHz

§ 80.1085(a)(6), either by installing the EPIRB close to, or by
allowing remote activation from, the position from which the ship is
normally navigated); or

of MF coast stations equipped with DSC; or
(4) On HF using DSC; or
(5) Through the INMARSAT geostationary satellite service if within
