Jack, FYI:
I sent the following e-mail to the Honolulu Sector Coast Guard through their web site (note the answer seams to come from AMVER Team- not sure why):

Please tell me what Marine SSB frequencies you monitor 24 hours a day? This would be the freq I should use in case of a marine emergency.

***Below is reply From Coast Guard sent via e-mail:***

Good morning,
Amver does not use Marine SSB frequencies to monitor marine emergencies. Sorry we cannot help. Please refer to our website though for more information on AMVER.

So the question is how would you send out a Pan Pan or a Mayday call?
Seems one is forced to have a Sat phone now days.
