                     ----- USCG Cutter Frequencies -----
    The USCG Cutter fleet normally operates on a set of frequencies known
as the Systems Coordination Net (SCN). The following list is not all-inclusive
and should be used only as a guideline for copying USCG Cutters.
2182    International Distress
2670    USCG Sectors and Stations
4125    Maritime Distress and Calling
4134    Systems Coordination Net, Vessel frequency
4426    Systems Coordination Net, Coast frequency
4523.6  USCG Sector St. Petersburg
5142.6  USCG Sector St. Petersburg
5320    USCG Tactical Net
6200    Systems Coordination Net, Vessel frequency
6215    Maritime Distress and Calling
6246.6  USCG Sector St. Petersburg
6501    Systems Coordination Net, Coast frequency
8240    Systems Coordination Net, Vessel frequency
8291    Maritime Distress and Calling
8294    Maritime Simplex used by District 1  
8301.6  USCG Sector San Juan
8337.6  USCGC Tactical Net
8764    Systems Coordination Net, Coast frequency
9001.6  USCGC District 7
10993.6 USCGC Sector Key West
12242   Systems Coordination Net, Vessel frequency
13089   Systems Coordination Net, Coast frequency
16432   Systems Coordination Net, Vessel frequency
17314   Systems Coordination Net, Coast frequency
    When operating on these nets, the USCG Cutters will use either their
international callsign, the tactical callsign "SHARK##" (where ## equals
the last two of the cutter's number), or the cutter's name. In addition,
the cutter may use a tactical callsign in the form of a L#L combination.
NOTE:  USCG Cutters assigned to inland waterways (WLIC, WLI, WLR, WYTL)
are not assigned international callsigns.
