Yes, you are right. I Should have explained better. I was referring to an intact antenna. Once I have broken one and I find out that I still could radiate enough energy to have a pretty strong transmission, however I was completely unable to receive signals so I guess that even with a broken one the chances are that you can still transmit a mayday signal.
