Coolest thing I've heard so far was the Japanese Air Self Defense force and the Chinese Navy arguing over the sovereignty of some island in the East China Sea.

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"?
