VK5MAV/6, OC-266 - UPDATE + NEWS
FROM VK5CE, answering the concerns of all IOTA community about Andy's situation:
Yes I'm worried about this too. I don't know what kind of safety network Andy has done, I'm sure he's put contingencies in place. I'm guessing that it is with Larysa his wife, I'm hoping his satellite phone is working OK and that he has set up scheduled phone calls with Larysa so that if anything happens then the boat can come to the island early to pick him up. Larysa may even be in Derby WA. I don't know who his boat operator in Derby is so I guess that if Larysa doesn't hear from him then they have their contingency plan in place.
He had a great signal on Friday morning so this is a real shame for him and I'm sure he is devastated.
I'm trying to think positively for his health and safety.Maybe the generator he borrowed/rented has failed or he may have a radio failure. So he may have used the satellite phone to call the boat and asked them to bring a couple of deep cycle batteries, but this extra boat journey would be a big $$$ expense. If its a radio failure then he may have to ring the boat and come home early. Either way he must be feeling terrible about this.
Hopefully he appears on the air by tomorrow or we hear from him tomorrow night
fingers crossed, there are hundreds and hundreds of us very worried
