    "You're on GEAAAAARD."

    Seems like it's gotten a lot better in the past month or two.

    Maybe since the FCC sent out that hand-slap letter?

    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 bet the controller is distressed.

    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.

    Especially in our post-9/11 world, if you get my drift.

    If we takeoff out of SAN, can you help me on my laptop with PBS bidding? I have many questions and will need your utmost attention and guidance.
