Re: VHF Protocol
For whatever little it is worth, the CG always gives an approximate landmark location after the lat/long around here. There was an epirb going off in the northern part of the Bay this past weekend and they indicated as much. I don't think I have literally ever been out on the water around here, without hearing at least one pan-pan or securite call. I guess that's a symptom of so many boats around these parts.
Also, I often hear them ask if the caller has a cell phone, before anything else.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
