Authorities release more audio samples of false distress calls

The agencies are releasing audio recordings of some of the radio distress calls.  Authorities hope someone will recognize the voice on the audio clips.


Here is the best audio clip that I found:

Just curious reading the fine print about the anonymous tip line.

If it's anonymous - how do they know who to give the reward to?

I guess its not as bad as informing on a drug dealer who will retaliate - but the legal system is not fully trusted to keep the persons name out of the "system" in some cases.



Now to set up the triangulation device in my tricorder to scan for their next transmission.

It is like the drug enforcement tip lines... you can give contact info and it is protected as "annonymous".

I hope that person goes into a deep ditch and no one finds him for a few days.  Not deep enough to kill him but deep enough to keep him from view for a day or two with a dead cell phone battery...  You know just enough time to "reflect" on his choices!

Also my initial reaction would be... if you cannot tell me who you are or where you launched from.... "Hope you can swim"!!!

Willful ignorance, PaTROLLing, bullying, dishonesty, and hypocrisy are among the traits that are common amongst those that espouse the Republican/Conservative/Tea Party ideology.

A non-response doesn't mean you've won, it merely means the obnoxious, illiterate, right-wing morons have taken too much of my time already.

Did I suggest that?

Name... Where they launched from... Not a single mention of GPS coordinates.

Were you making a half hearted attempt at suggesting that knowing ones name and general idea of where they are is too much to ask in an emergency?  Last I checked boat radios are not like cell phones which 911 can lock onto almost immediately when you call for help.

I already posted this once but it disappeared, so here it is again.

A former Bowling Green student will serve 3 months in Federal prison for false distress calls.  I don't think these are connected to the thread (pled guilty i  January?), but I was interested in the punisment.  They don't mess around:

Judge Sara Lioi sentenced Kumar during a two-day hearing Thursday and Friday in Akron. The sentence included 250 hours of community service and restitution of $277,257 to U.S. agencies and $211,750 to the Canadian government, which sent an airplane crew from Ontario to assist in the 21-hour search.

I'm sure they hit him extra hard because he has a pilot's license...

Interesting that at one time he wanted to be a Coast Guard pilot...

glad to see he's scratched that idea ;D ;D ;D
