The following explains how to use the KDDI INMARSAT service from an INMARSAT M equipment.
- Turn on the equipment and face the antenna towards one of the satellites.
- Dial the KDDI Land Earth Station ID Number "003#."
- Dial the code that represents the direct-dial code "00."
- NNext, dial the country code followed by phone number or telex number. To call another INMARSAT equipment, dial the ocean region code for where it is located, and its ID number.
- Lastly, dial #.
The KDDI Land Earth Station ID Number
|Ocean region||Atlantic Ocean - West||Atlantic Ocean - East||Indian Ocean||Pacific Ocean|
|Land Earth Station ID Number||003||003||003||003|
Ocean region code
|Atlantic Ocean - West||Atlantic Ocean - East||Indian Ocean||Pacific Ocean|
"Specify all regions/870" is a new ocean region code for faxes and telephones that automatically connects to the region where the other party's INMARSAT equipment is located.
You can also use the following codes to access a variety of services, apart from the direct-dial code "00."
|00 (telephone only)||Automatic connection (then enter the destination number)||The other party's telephone handset|
|12 (telephone only)||Information||KDDI operator|
|32 (telephone only)||Medical advice||Medical organization|
|33 (telephone only)||Technical assistance||KDDI operator (technology)|
|38 (telephone only)||Medical assistance||Medical organization|
|62 (telephone only)||Medical advice||KDDI operator|
|91 (telephone only)||Line test||KDDI exchanger||Tone return|
- 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.
