So you are dual watching 8 and 16. You call your mate on 8, while at the same time there is a mayday on 16. So how would the SH handle that? You are transmitting so your speakers are disabled..? Or do you mean as soon as you release the PTT an ICOM stays on CH8 rather than reverting to Dual Watch (pretty sure my ICOM h/h does that can check for you) where it would pick up the tail end of the mayday?
