Default Cold War submarine Ojibwa

The sub is on its way to be put on display in Port Burwell on Lake Erie. It is on a barge tended by two tugs. It just came into Port Weller in St.Catharines at the starts of the Welland Canal.
Comms between the barge and tugs is on 156.725. The actual freq might be 156.750 (Marine 15A) but my close call kept saying it was 156.725. I didn't have time to stick around to sort that out - vehicular and pedestrian traffic is crazy!
The tugs do not seem to be squawking AIS.
If you want to see the sub - i suggest going somewhere south of the QEW Skyway as the Canal Road is closed between Lock 1 and Lock 2. Should be there sometime after noon.
