CAMSPAC PT REYES to USCG 1714

EPIRB going off on 406mhz @ position 33.37N, 130.07.9W, correction, it's an aviation ELT beacon from Argentina.

(Location is about 688 miles due west of LA)

USCG 1714 has been ordered to get a visual identification. Will report on 8983 Mhz.

CAMSPAC requesting USCG 1714 to monitor 121.5 Mhz also.

USCG 1714 current POS is 33.34N, 129.22W

Not much happening yet. Sounds like USCG 1714 has started a search pattern and is looking for wreckage, etc. Position reports every 15-20 minutes or so.

CAMSPAC just updated the search pattern. Will try a 30x30 mile search box. It's farther SW of the initial location.
