USCG SARs in Bahamas, tune 8983.0 kHz USB

     On 8983.0 kHz USB, CG 2102, an HU-25A Falcon Jet out of CGAS-Miami, has
just told CAMSLANT to report to CG District 7 that they have found the source
of the EPIRB.  It is at 26-29.6 North, 78-40.8 West, over land at the Freeport
Bahamas Airport and Port Facility.  That report came at 1:34am EDT (0534z).
     Then, CG 2102 was tasked to locate the source of an EPIRB near 27-22.8
North, 77-17.7 West, also in the waters of the Bahamas.  CAMSLANT passed this
information to CG 2102 at 1:40am EDT (0540z).
     CG 2102 says he will first have to land in Freeport for refueling.  But
almost immediately he reports that Freeport Airport is unable to refuel them
at this time, and would have to call someone in for the refueling.  So CG 2102
will RTB Miami, refuel there and await the USCG decision as to whether they or
another USCG asset will take over.
