deployment Recovered by Travis Miles aboard the Palmer Station 'tin can' boat. Recovered because iridium had a missed a few call in's and argos had not updated. Iridium missed call in's were due to script being off and TWR dockserver malfunctioning due to power outage.

deployment Also throughout this deployment the FiRE has had trouble turning on and off. I suspect that multiple surface behaviors cause a problem with MA file re-reads. This needs to be confirmed on a simulator with goto_l10.ma, an important MA.

deployment Argos was noticed to not be updating as long ago as 1/18 which was right around the first deployment. What is strange about this is that there has been many power cycles and even deployments since then.

However, it does seem to be the argos reboot problem, as use - argos, 1 min, use + argos seemed to fix the problem instantly. Will email TWR to alert and we should always check to make sure argos is updating.

deployment Script was left off 2/21/12 which caused 10 'no char xmitted' iridium failover to TWR. However, TWR suffered power outage and CHris Decollibus stated that he was having trouble with their Dockserve as well. This would explain several missed call in's of ru24 during the early 2/22 period.

Since switching it back to RU dockserver there have been no iridium issues.

deployment New Mission:
100_nuw.mi
Glider will surface for waypoint, 1.5 hr no_comms, 22 UTC surfacing
(we are opting towards GPS surfacings as opposed to small radius station keeping. Waypoints will be given at least 1.25 - 1.5 km apart so glider actually swims and is not on surface too long)

Onward to station 2, 'Wauermans'.
