"Just because you've got a VHF doesn't mean you have to have it on all the time, but it can be very useful. "
That is the whole point at issue. I got tired of being told that, since I had it on board, I "had" to have it on and keep a "listening watch", which is indeed the formal situation. It's "voluntary fit" kit, so I voluntarily "unfitted" it.
