Again, if yoy\u are in an area where the traffic is so high, you will probably arrange to hail people on another channel. However, in many places the ONLY channel people monitor in 16. Tough %^&*() if you think they will hear you on another channel.
i totally agree, those people that are carringly on conversations * I am cruising at 5.8 Kts, how fast are you sailing" are ass holes, and I let them know that this is an emegency channel. However, Boat A, this is B, do you read, and then switching to 68 or some other channel, fine with me. Where do you sail that this kind of hailing interferes with EMERGENCIES!
