I very much like the idea of hams stepping-up to the plate
to volunteer time to monitor these freqs.  It might even
be possible to get special permission to contact these
craft on these freqs in cases of maritime emergencies.
It would certainly fit within the framework of amateur
radio being a public service and promoter of international
good will.

With a stricture against handling commmercial traffic,
the commercial shore stations couldn't complain
since you're not hurting their business.  I don't see how
any reasonable person could be against this--
but then, the Washington dragons are rarely "reasonable."

What is the sense of the group about getting the FCC
to seriously consider such a proposal?
What are the "cons" that I don't see?
