RE: So why isn't your DSC hooked up?

There are many localized places in the San Juans (and Gulf Islands) where there is no cell phone signal to be had or it is so weak that you generally can't complete a phone call without losing the call.* Sucia Island is one of them, particularly down on the water.* Westsound is another one.* And we've encountered many more.* Sometimes one phone service will have a signal or partial signal while another service has nothing.

But we have not been anywhere yet where VHF did not work, at least for hearing or contacting the Coast Guard or getting weather.* Ship-to-ship coverage can be limited in some areas because of the terrain.
