  2. Confirm that the antenna has acquired the satellite and is on standby.
  3. Dial "003#," the KDDI access code.
    • Depending on the equipment manufacturer, you may have to dial "003*" or "003" to access KDDI instead. You can also choose to register the access code beforehand. For details, please refer to the equipment's instruction manual.
  4. Next, dial the country code followed by the telephone number.

  • From June 3, 2013, as with medical assistance communications by dialing 38#, distress calls, emergency calls and safety communications that originate from an INMARSAT B, M or Fleet terminal to the Yamaguchi LES are directly connected to the Japan Coast Guard, not via the KDDI operator. The method of making calls from ships remains the same.
