You're quite right, Jack.

Hate to say this, but Cdn Power & Sail squadron used to encourage a lot of people to ask for a radio check on Ch. 16. They used to suggest that one hail Coast Guard Radio on 16 and ask for a radio check. CG Radio would respond by asking you to move to a working channel like Ch.22. The thinking was that you would know that you have at least 2 working channels.

After chatting with some CG buddies, I can say that the CG strongly discourages that practice. Instead, they suggest contacting them directly on 83 Alpha or 22 Alpha.

The one common theme, however, is that people who need to check radios, contact the CG directly, instead of making a general broadcast.

And your understanding is exactly correct.

This is exactly what I recall from my CPS course.
Now I've learned something new.
