Re: Medical Evacuation on Maui Return
Could you tell me what freqs you tried to reach the CG when using the SSB? I have SSB and curious how effective it is in an emergency. Have heard others say they were not able to reach CG when between Hawaii and CA.
I tried 2182. I know the SSB worked because we used a radio net everyday.
Having the sat phone and the number for CG Honolulu was great.
