Visual Distress Signals VDSs
A distress signal, also known as a distress call, is an internationally recognized means for obtaining help. Distress signals are communicated by transmitting radio signals, displaying a visually observable item or illumination, or making a sound audible from a distance. A distress signal indicates that a person or group of people, ship, aircraft, or other vehicle is threatened by serious and/or imminent danger and requires immediate assistance.[1]:PCG D−3 Use of distress signals in other circumstances may be against local or international law. An urgency signal is available to request assistance in less critical situations. In order for distress signalling to be the most effective, two parameters must be communicated: Alert or notification of a distress in progress Position or location (or localization or pinpointing) of the party in distress. For example, a single aerial flare alerts observers to the existence of a vessel in distress somewhere in the general direction of the flare sighting on the horizon but extinguishes within one minute or less. A hand-held flare burns for three minutes and can be used to localize or pinpoint more precisely the exact location or position of the party in trouble. An EPIRB both notifies or alerts authorities and at the same time provides position indication information. Distress can be indicated by any of the following officially sanctioned methods: • Transmitting a spoken voice Mayday message by radio over very high frequency channel 16 (156.8 MHz) and/or high frequency on 2182 kHz • Transmitting a digital distress signal by activating (or pressing) the distress button (or key) on a marine radio equipped with Digital Selective Calling (DSC) over the VHF (channel 70) and/or HF frequency bands. • Transmitting a digital distress signal by activating (or pressing) the distress button (or key) on an Inmarsat-C satellite internet device • Sending the Morse code group SOS (▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄▄) by light flashes or sounds • Burning a red flare (either hand-held or aerial parachute flare) • Launching distress rockets • Emitting orange smoke from a canister • Showing flames on the vessel (as from a burning tar barrel, oil barrel, etc.) • Raising and lowering slowly and repeatedly both arms outstretched to each side • Making a continuous sound with any fog-signalling apparatus • Firing a gun or other explosive signal at intervals of about a minute • Flying the international maritime signal flags NC • Displaying a visual signal consisting of a square flag having above or below it a ball or anything resembling a ball (round or circular in appearance) #SOS #VDSs #DistressSignals Don't Forget to Subscribe Us Like Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MarineOnlineYoutube Follow Twitter: https://twitter.com/MarineOnlineYou Follow Google+ https://plus.google.com/107450234425940445683 Website: https://marineonlineyou.blogspot.com/

30   distress signals by radio
The most common way of sending a distress signal is by radio. Modern radios conform to the GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety System). GMDSS is an international system that uses terrestrial and satellite technology and ship board radio systems to allow rapid response in an emergency situation. Nowadays distress messages can be initiated digitally by pressing the call button on the radio set. Radio sets which are not according to the GMDSS standard transmit a distress message by voice on channel 16 on a VHF transmitter, or on 2182 kHz on an MF transmitter. The reception range of a VHF transmitter to a coastal station averages 35 nautical miles and between an MF transmitter and a coastal station 150 nautical miles. If you or your vessel are in grave and immediate danger use the MAYDAY call. MAYDAY is the internationally recognized radiotelephony distress signal for a person or a vessel in grave and imminent danger.

Distress hand flares - old vs new vs LED
I don't think I need to explain much here, you will get the idea after watching the video. The most reliable hand flare here was of course the LED flare. Is it powerful enough to draw any attention in case required... well... at least one key element for that would be missing - the smoke. Is it as bright as the pyro? No it's not. Would somebody take it as a distress signal, or just another night club toy? I don't know... When using a pyrotechnical flare, consider the following: - The burning time is about one minute. - It will become hot, use gloves. Keep a pair ready where you store your pyrotechnics. - Beware of the sparks and burning residues, point away from your boat and people. - Mind also the wind direction so it won't blow the sparks on you. - After burning, the flare will stay hot for some time and will ignite flammable materials.

Emergency Marine Distress Signals
https://moxietraining.com/products/emergency-marine-distress-signals Part of the Marine Survival Series. Regardless of vessel or offshore installation size, the sea is unpredictable and without warning can place the lives of all crew members in jeopardy. In addition, unforeseen accidents such as fires, equipment malfunctions and capsizing can trigger an emergency evacuation of personnel. It is vital for crews to understand and be trained in the use of marine distress signals ranging from radio communication and visual markers such as flares, smokes or rockets, to electronic locators such as EPIRBs and SARTs. In this program, maritime employees will learn how to rapidly notify search and rescue authorities to their emergency and assist them by quickly guiding rescue craft to their location. This is vital compliance training that can literally save the crew's life!

Distress Signal Testing
As sailors, we carry pyrotechnics on board—per U.S. Coast Guard and SOLAS regulations—and hope we'll never have to use them. In fact, it's illegal to use them, unless you're experiencing an actual emergency or have received permission from the proper local authorities.

31   distress pyrotechnics
Distress pyrotechnics come in various types: handheld, buoyant, or as parachute rockets. The red parachute rocket is designed for long - range signaling. During the day the visibility of the flare is up to 8 nautical miles and at night up to 21 nautical miles. The rocket carries its payload to a height of 984 feet and then ejects a red flare. The burning time is 40 seconds at 30.000 candelas. The red hand flare is used for short - range signaling situations. During a clear dark night the visibility of the flare is 5 nautical miles at sea level and 10 nautical miles from an aircraft. In daylight the visibility is reduced. The burning time is 60 seconds at a min. of 15.000 candelas, and the flare is red. The buoyant orange smoke signal is used in daylight only, to pinpoint the distress position to a searching aircraft. It emits dense orange smoke for about 2 minutes. It is very important to read the instructions for use on each distress signal carefully. Store your signaling devices in a marked watertight container which should be readily available. All pyrotechnics are equipped with a date of expiration. Replace expired pyrotechnics as they become less reliable. To dispose of them, return them to the manufacturer or to the nearest coast guard station.
