Mike,

Here is the latest from "Sputnik". Our latest location data appears to
show that "Sputnik" is still moving around the southeastern corner of
George's Bank. Since he arrived near this location (roughly a week ago),
he has proven to be more difficult to keep track of, and we have not
received as many good locations while he has been in this area. I think
the most likely reason for this may be that he is spending less time at the
surface (a good thing, as he may be looking for and finding food in this
area) and moving more erratically. The lower signal rate may also be due
to sea conditions, but from all indications, this is not as likely. The
last few locations, appear to be another straight line run towards the edge
of the bank. Hopefully we will see in the next few days if this means that
"Sputnik" is once again on the move....
