Whilst I agree a Mayday or ELT activation would be nice, and the PTT is right there on the sidestick, we do not know if the radios were tuned to guard, I suspect there was plenty going on around them that precluded setting up a frequency on the radio. Even tx-ing blind on whatever frequency they were on might not be heard if as is thought, they were in an area of an electrical storm.

Just my two rupees worth.
