Re: Be Aware of Your Wake . . . Show Some Courtesy

OK,.... I know the channels as currently designated .... Ready?.... As one looks at the actual use of said channels it would make sense to use 17 (low power) to comunicate between passing vessels on a narrow waterway. Currently this channel is typicaly used by local Yacht clubs and town docks here in the USA. I am only suggesting adding close distance passing and manuvering between non comercial boats to this channel in order to relieve Ch 16 from the chatter we all hear. Clearly this is trhe logical choice as it is 1w and does not interfere with commrcial traffic on 13 and "help us all" on 16. The low wattage is the game.

I am sorry for drifting this thread. but the idea started here.
