NOTES: LNS note: The Longitude and latitude were recorded approximately 2000 hours. 07Oct2003 SAS. Reel notes: "No complete calls. 1750. Cut #3. Humpback portions (before we were ordered not to record) this was flesh sample time. 7 Feb. Weak frog like sounds fish croakers may be heard tail of cut 3." Tape Log: "Cut#3. 7 Feb 1972. Time 1408. Came upon a Humpback whale - have recorded portions of it, then stopped because this was flesh sample time - on second approach, 1750 time, we have animal calling - we are on the BQR-3 modified. Signal is good but will be incomplete. Snapping shrimp are heard in the background. We speed up to 1/3 speed to close. This is a good 'OSN @ 1/3 speed' section - then next cut is low level croaker background." SEAOCEAN.
