Recognize this voice? Coast Guard seeks to ID person making hoax mayday calls
The Coast Guard is seeking the public's help to identify a suspected hoax caller who has been transmitting distress calls since late March around Ocean City, Maryland. The Coast Guard said watchstanders in the region have received a steady stream of suspected or confirmed hoax radio calls that are believed to be from the same person. The calls in Ocean City were made on VHF-FM marine band channel 16, a channel designated only for hailing and distress calls. The caller has stated that they were "going down with the ship" and regularly broadcasts "mayday, mayday, mayday," along with a string other calls and including profanity.
