I did receive an email from kd4ufd-14 today, thanking me and others for our
response... Glad to hear Tom was OK...    But
The message I sent back, when I received the EMERGENCY BEACON never was
ack'ed, and therefore I never knew if me, or anyone else was able to help.
Although I can see the thinking of     ONE WAY COMMUNICATIONS     it does
nothing to insure COMMUNICATIONS..   What should you and I do, if we see /
hear or receive an EMERGENCY BEACON from someone,  call 911,   try to get in
touch with the calling party,  as I and possibly others did, maybe call or
try to locate someone in the nearby area if possible????    Bottom line is
this,   if you do NOT have full round trip COMMUNICATIONS someone, and quite
possibly both parties will be left in the DARK...

Have a nice day, and a Merry Christmas..
