IMO That was the worst spot help use EVER.

This is the opposite end of things. Calling for "help" exposes others and should truly, only be used when you have fully exhausted your capacity for self rescue. Unfortunately that kind of shit happens all too often with SPOT and other beacons. Our local Search and Rescue has responded to plenty of this crap. IMO they should stick these guys with a hefty "rescue" bill for such nonsense.
