Yep! But if you're pinned under your rig and tried everything then I'd rather have 'em POd at me than dead

Just FYI, from my experience with my ICOM HT with the rubber ducky antenna the "reach" isn't very good. For instance in the "Ranch" I could not typically hear the Centennial tower (<10 miles away) controllers talking, but I could hear the planes in the vicinity talking to the tower. Even when I used it once in an semi-emergency during a flight I could not talk to the tower until I was within ~10 miles of the airport.
