Revoking a Distress Call

You do not transmit a distress call until you hold DISTRESS for at least three seconds. If you inadvertently make a distress call, or are no longer in distress, you should cancel the call immediately by transmitting a voice message to all stations on channel 16.

  1. Select CANCEL > YES, and wait until DISTRESS CANCEL HAS BEEN SENT appears on the screen.
  2. Select OK.
  3. Hold PTT on the handset, and transmit an appropriate voice message to cancel the distress call (Distress Call Cancellation Script).
  4. Select an option:
    • Select END to complete the distress-call cancellation and return to normal radio operation.

    • Select RESEND to resend the distress-call cancellation and start the process again.
