I appreciate you taking a look through the journals, and you may certainly 
be correct, but the trip is on their dime... I also just spoke with L-Rod 
and she told me that there have been a lot of reported problems with the 
Spot coming through, people not being able to get a lock, or transmit. so I 
suspect that is going to end up being the ultimate problem and at some point 
they will make contact again.....
Thank you
