The club, or "most" clubs are not obliged to keep an active listening watch on CH 16...., Each club has it's own CH.... best will be, to get this info, referring to working CHs in respective areas, prior to heading out to sea.

More than likely you were taught wrong....??? It's not a 24hs rescue station....

Missed the OP but I would be furious if not dead if I didn't get response on Ch 16 if within coverage. From the title, Durban Port should pick you up easily from Ballito as long as you not on a handheld or low power.

I read the initial post.
sad that you edited it.

in any case,
you should know, that registered launch sites work on certain channels on the radio.
not all stations will monitor channel 16 unless the radio is set to it.

if you really had a emergency, believe me, a dsc would go through.....remember, radio will switch to hi output!!!!!

your sad experience could be a lesson to others.

all depends where you found yourself!!!
up the coast, or out to see????

The reason why I edited the post is to stop a fight :)
It was a minor emergency that was sorted out--so no need to push the emergency dsc---My main complain was that even with a test call no one replied--I tested both my radios (one on boat and one in car) and both worked 100%---I would say that before going out to sea--doesn't matter where--you have to test your rig BEFORE going out to sea---learned my lesson .(mine was working fine)
Just peed off that I had no response on CH16
I know some launch sites have their "own" channel but at least someone in KZN should s/by on ch16.

Lets leave it there.

So guys---test your equipment before a launch !!!

no need to worry.
on this forum, we are all grown ups.
we do not fight here. the kids have all left!!!!! :)

from your initial post, it seems like you had a fuel problem.
was it just a simple mistake from your side?
what did you do to rectify it?

this is where we all can learn from each others mistakes.

It was my own stupid mistake --the safety rip (do you call it that) that goes to the starting switch came loose and I did not see it :(

so the kill switch cord?

we flipped a aqua quad in the surf at cape vidal.

coming out I was standing to line up.
waited for the correct wave and started going at speed.
as I sat down, my brother grabbed hold of me to prevent him from falling off.
with that he pulled the kill switch out.

tried starting eventually saw it. plugged back got going and it was too late.
took a big wave head on, which capsized us.
lost some rods and the engine cover.

its always fun!!!!
adrenalin junkies, we are indeed
