deployment Optode 970 appears to be working on return, not completely sure what caused it to stop working.

Likely the cable, some light separation noticed at cable bulkhead -->cable connection

deployment Cargo ships and tugs made me nervous about offshore transect; retasking to inshore by shoal. RU07 is performing well in the shallows. :-) Will burn some battery hanging out in shallow water, but recovery is tomorrow.

deployment Appears optode has died. Errors reported in .mlg and u4stalk 0 9600 29 connects, but no data is returned. Possible voltage board failure? We've seen this before. Disabled in proglets.dat and sample27.ma. Didn't change tbdlist.dat or nbdlist.dat; oxy lines ignored.

deployment Turned of altimeter filter, boat measurements of depth agree more with unfiltered hits. Also slight bottom sample showed false bottom 2-3 m deeper.

Also set number of hits required to 1 and set altimeter_rate to -1 just in case.

Lowered climb_to by 1.5 m to 4.5 and dive to altitude to 4 off bottom (in hopes the altimeter now gives a better bottom).

1.5 hour missions, soon to be 2 as soon as altimeter settings look good.
