DSC radio emergency call button.

If you hit the emergency call button, the radio changes to channel 16, and sends out an emergency hail using DSC on channel 70. Any VHF with DSC enabled will answer the emergency hail and switch to 16.
No need for you to repeatedly make Mayday calls, although you can continue to do that if you want. For the other vessel, there is no need to monitor channel 16 for emergency transmissions.
