I'm happy it will still continue to offer a service to mariners.
Quite right - I heard somewhere that amateurs wanted to use it - nothing against amateurs, but it didn't seem right to me.
In its day it was the most important maritime frequency and it would be denigrating to use it for chit-chat. (even though, in distant parts, some of us well may have!).
