    Mike, et al

    Locations as of Monday morning. We are still getting a lot of single
    signal messages (no locations). This seems to be common at the beginning
    of tracks, so I am hoping that we will get more location as time goes on.
     So far we are getting several locations per day. They are still not very
    reliable ad scattered about, but it appears that Wadadli is still heading
    east slowly. His latest location is roughly forty miles east of his
    release point. This would seem to indicate that he is not heading in a
    straight line (as we would get a straight track and he could be moving
    about fifty miles per day). As we are not getting a lot of signals at the
    surface, it also seems that he is spending a lot of time below the surface
    (at least the tag is below the surface). Because of the way the tag is
    attached, this can also mean that he is spending a lot of time with his
    head up (looking around) rather than swimming. I think the latter is the
    most likely case. We will (hopefully) see more soon.

    later,

    ge
