I was getting both stations loud and clear from my location. At one point it sounded like someone was jamming the freq during the phone patch attempt. Rescue 308 was given instructions to stand down and return to base from their command.

Nice catch Steve!

Yea I caught some of the transmissions but at this time at night I am getting 3 1/2 to 4 DB'S of background hiss in the 5 meg's band and was having some trouble hearing them. I think rescue 308 said has would be back at base in around 20 minutes.
