Mayday 150The Rescue-21 system indicates that the transmitter is South of Cape Disappointment Coast Guard station. However, there is no cross bearing to give them a good location. 

Local amateur radio operators are asked to monitor 156.800 MHz, no PL, 5 KHz wide (not the new VHF Narrow-band used by public safety agencies).  Unfortunately, you will hear routine status announcements & the occasional ship-to-ship transmissions.  What you are listening for is the following voice: https://www.dvidshub.net/audio/45774/rescue-21-recording-false-mayday-call

The suspect is described as a white male adult, 35-40 years old, with an accent indicating he is from SE states or the East coast.  If you hear such a transmission, note your location, the signal strength, & time.

Phone the Coast Guard tip line at 503-338-9021.

Then, phone Don Hillgaertner WA7TEM at 503-338-7428 so he can update Clatsop Emergency Management.  Also keep track of your “monitoring hours”, so they can be submitted as volunteer time.  Any questions can be forwarded to Don at 503-338-7428 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
