That's my guess.
You got some serious language skills. Chinese and Japanese? Hell, I can barely understand Jacksonvillese most of the time. Gotta git me one of them Rosetta Stone South'rn courses.
From the document: "Of particular importance, Section 87.173 of the FCC’s rules mandates that 121.500 MHz be used solely for emergency and distress purposes."
Not to put too fine a semantic point on this... ATC calling Skywest to relay a frequency a NORDO Delta flight is important, especially if the if the Delta pilots are awake, but is it really a condition of "emergency" or "distress"?

I would consider being NORDO under IFR, or while within controlled airspace, to be an emergency, yes, despite the existence of 14 CFR 91.185.
