    Hello Kate,

    I am not a staff member of MarineTraffic but a long-term Belgian user and if I can help you, I advise you to introduce the call sign in your AIS-transponder the call sign is one of the static Information, such as the  vessel’s name, IMO number, MMSI number, dimensions ... in the transponder,  and..., let then the transponder "ON" for a few days....

    I hope this will help you...,
    Best regards out Belgium

    Hello all.

    Dear Marc, thank you for your kind collaboration with our community. We really appreciate it.

    Dear Kate, I am Aline, Customer Support Representative at MarineTraffic and will be happy to help you.

    As mentioned by our valued customer Marc, in order for

    https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:6665700/mmsi:368175290/imo:0/vessel:COLIBRI 

    to have a Call Sign in MarineTraffic, we need receive some signals from her AIS transponder with the relevant Call Sign. As such, you would indeed need to enter the Call Sign in her AIS transponder and leave it on for some time. Once our network of coastal stations or satellite constellation collects some signals from her with the Call sign, this information will be automatically updated in MarineTraffic. 

    The above process is justified by the fact that MarineTraffic is a global ship tracking intelligence based on the AIS Protocol, meaning that most of the information we have access to and provide derives from the AIS messages we receive from AIS transponders installed on vessels.

    I hope this clarifies your concerns but please don't hesitate to share any further questions you may have. I would be happy to assist.

    Best,
