A few more hits from "Lucky". These show him still near shore near a small
island (Leadbetter Island) off of the west coast of an only somewhat larger
island (Vinalhaven Island) on mid-coast Maine. The better "LC" (location
code...3 is the best...in descending order 2,1,0,A,B,) is a result of both
more "hits" per location (more signals being picked up per satellite pass),
meaning he is either on shore or at the surface for a longer period of
time, and he is not moving as much (the satellite gets weirded out when the
transmitter it is supposed to be finding keeps moving around, and will give
the location a larger error class).
