Saildog, I am aware of EPIRBs and SSBs. I have both and a Ham licence. I guess my grammar was a little off if you thought I meant you could indicate you are safe with an EPIRB.

My real point was, if you are overdue but safe, it would be nice to let someone know.

Simple courtesy.
There is a tide in the affairs of men,
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
Shakespeare, Julius Caesar IV, iii, 217
