All RUDICS gliders (not ru29 dod) sufferred iridium problems Th 6pm to about 3 pm Fri. Emails with iridium said RF noise problem but strangely issue got fixed within an hour or 2 of emailing them. All gliders switched to TWR for about a day.

FLBBCD calibration coefficients verified as correct.

CDOM values seem high/suspect compared to RU39.
Chl and BB values agree between RU39 and RU40.
