One datapoint to add... Our nearly new handheld shows very poor range, perhaps only a mile. You may want to check your handheld's range.


Great minds discuss ideas;
Average minds discuss events;
Small minds discuss people.
The best minds discuss sailing (and a little bit of politics). I don't know why. It's a mystery!

That's a typical reaction to a scene like that. Not necessarily idiots, just panicking due to an absence of uniforms. Uniforms make everyone happy.

Getting the coast guard out there (coast guards have uniforms!) with the equipment to move the old guy while protecting his neck is the right thing to do, as long as the old guy is breathing. Old people are easy to break.

As someone with a George Costanza wallet in my back pocket, I am deeply offended by this thread!
