Re: US Coast Guard Radio Usage
I think one of the newer handheld VHF models has a recording buffer that will replay an announcement. If the biscuits are in your ears
, that gives you a chance to take them out and listen again.
So far I do not think the biscuits are on my end...but then again we are not given to admitting those types of things.
The actual situations I have dealt with were mostly either excited dispatchers, or incorrect usage of the microphone, like having it too close to the mouth when speaking.
I like the recording idea, that way if you need to have a record of the conversation you can, but if it was truly garbled I think you might be wasting the memory space haha.
It is good to learn from your mistakes, but much better to learn from the mistakes of others...
