Hello! :)

Hi everyone, good to see you all!

Would a Pan Pan have been advised at a list of 20 degrees?
Caroline Ross
41:04
Good question, Edgar. Will note it for Q & A after.

The boat position, boat description and crew details could have been with CG before Mayday was issues saving lots of stress.

I bought a Standard Horizon HX870 a year ago and I can't figure out how to adjust the squelch. I follow the instructions in my manual, but I either get rid of the static and can't hear transmissions or have to strain to hear transmissions through the static. Any ideas?
Caroline Ross
44:50
Carolyn, I have that same radio and I took it to the Harbour Chandler and had them show me how to do it.
Paul
01:12:01
For beginners without a VHF can they use a cellphone to relay a May Day? There a a lot of new paddlers w/o training or equipment.
Caroline Ross
01:12:32
Mary and Paul, questions both noted.
Paul
01:18:18
Likely thru 911

*16 on your cell phone dials coast guard directly

Is the new VHF course manual materially different from the old one….should we get a new one to stay up to date?
homebase
01:26:48
Are there significant changes in the new manual?
Caroline Ross

If we’re doing general communications, do we do the 3x calling to the person and saying our own name?
Carolyn Lambrechts
01:33:34
I was told to do a radio check on channel 10 - Winchelsea Control.
Jennifer (for now)
01:36:05
Can you say again where we can find a map to let us know which WX channel to tune to (I think you said there was one?)
Jennifer (for now)
01:38:26
BC Ferries uses 11 here for Victoria traffic
rhondajohnson
01:39:11

Ross
01:39:15
I Managed to communicate with coast guard from the bunsbys. What range would they be at ?

Channel 11 is Victoria marine traffic - I have called that channel to get through to BC Ferries if I need info about ferry traffic

Wikipedia has a list of CG stations/bases (scroll down for Western Region), but I haven't been able to quickly find a map. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Canadian_Coast_Guard_Bases_and_Stations

what ds radio do you recommend if purchasing
homebase
01:51:20
MOB, does it get broadcast or could I use it to mark a position where my hatch cover went down ??
Ross
01:52:08
If travelling in remote region with radio off and mayaday required how long for GPS signal to be acquired
Paul
