Plumper is on a distinguished road
Here in the Pacific NW the USCG also monitors 22A and the CCG monitors 83A. There are alternate channels but they don't have the entire boating world monitoring like 16 does (or should have).

Theoretically a stuck microphone transmit key, or a fault in the mike itself, though you'd have to be pretty ignorant not to realize it. If done on purpose, my guess would be mental illness plus boredom.

Happens all the time...I think may times due to boaters leaving the mic on the cushions where it gets "trapped" in transmit mode between them. Sometimes can go on for hours and it is really irritating if you have to monitor 16 like we do at the docks. I don't think the CG has anyone out there tracking folks down!

Call the FCC at 888-225-5322 and follow the prompts.
