The bands are very noisy to day, My usually check is with he Time Code Channels and only 15Mhz
was barely receivable. I caught Search and Rescue being organised via 12.290MHz Australia SAR
was calling for any vessel within 4 hours of LAT/LON to call in via HF or via Sat phone ASAP.
But nothing else heard for a while so I've moved back to SWL to see what I can get on such a poor
raining morning :)

Earlier this morning I intercepted the SAR request for a Geraldton based cruiser called Flashtown.
Later when I returned I intercepted the Racing Yacht Maximus encountering issues with her Keel.
Her are some recorded intercepts:
The story was finally covered by Sail-World "Maximus PAN-PAN".
