hi folks, thanks for all the help today with the emergency beacon, just 
thought i should do something, sending a email here really got the ball 
rolling, good job all, not sure if it was real or not if we get a real one 
someday we will be top of it hopefully. 73 all kc8gkf

i did not try to contact wide1-1 as its not a call.
not allowed to make contact with stations with out a callsign, but in this 
case if it was a emergency i could have. but good thing to remember, use ur 
call if you have a emergency. I did watch for a few hours for beacons, 
traffic, msg,s over the aprs 200-300 miles out from my location.
good nite

looking in my callsign heard list for kd0cvn. have a kd0cun. wx station
so far.
