Almost Unsaved

Some moron in the English Channel forced a British Coast Guard helicopter mission on Sunday to track him down and inform him from the air that he was keying his VHF on channel 16 for more than an hour, effectively jamming the distress channel for the entire area. The frequency was opened up just minutes before a mayday was transmitted. Annoying on a race course, potentially life-threatening on the ocean. The Coastguard said, “If you cannot hear any radio traffic in a busy area it is probably because you are continuously transmitting.” Ya think?
