   transponders to assist the searching units.

   (b) Homing signals are those locating signals which are transmitted by
   mobile units in distress, or by survival craft, for the purpose of
   providing searching units with a signal that can be used to determine
   the bearing to the transmitting stations.

   bands: 117.975-136 MHz, 121.5 MHz, 156-174 MHz, 406-406.1 MHz, and
