Not sure i would call it a hazard as I don’t see any harm or danger in it not working

It sure is a bad look for Sea Tow to have so much publicity about a free service they are not making available. It’s advertised in all magazines and internet

If that is the only way you check if the radio is working, that’s lame

It’s very easy to use the VHF to call a marina , vessel or even a Sea Tow Vessel to ask how the are reading you. Even Sea tow automated system couldn’t do that when it worked.

In fact if you are exorcized that it’s not working call call the Sea Tow Boats on the water on the VHF. Tell them they advertise a free service and since it’s not working you and all you friends will be checking in with them till it starts working again����������������������
