Re: uo-14 and emergency traffic



I feel compelled to point out, as it is very important, that the US has
formally agreed to use the international convention of "MAYDAY" for voice,
and "SOS" for CW.

Use what you want, but if you hear "MAYDAY", Please, please, please regard
it as an emergency. By the way, you can be prosecuted for falsly
transmitting a "MAYDAY", but you can say "BREAK" as many times as you wish
and the FCC does not care, and neither do  many others.
