Re: marine VHF radio channels ?
AN FYI regarding channel 16.
USCG, and most coast stations maintain a listening watch on this channel.
The Putnam County sheriff patrol has a number for your cell. any1 no it? I think its 3416.
It can take up to an hour for a GC chopper out of Jersey to rescue.
How inappropriate to call this planet Earth when it is quite clearly Ocean.
