Re: US Coast Guard Radio Usage

I have called as Mark suggested. I have suggested to my wife that Coast Guard trainees must take a special course to be able to say so much unintelligible stuff. Probably the same instructor who teaches doctors to write.

I also find it difficult to know if I'm effected. I rarely know off the top of my head exactly where I am in lat/long terms. So when the CG gives me a mumbled quick position I have know idea if I'm in the area or not.

It's interesting that the one thing I always here quite clearly (I am not the offending user) MARINERS ARE REMINDED THAT CHANNEL 16 IS AN EMERGENCY AND HAILLING CHANNEL ONLY. UNITED STATES COAST GUARD SECTOR __________

Good (or bad depending on how you look at it) to know I'm not the only one.
