    We may have a problem.

    Attached are a couple of maps of the last few
    days of signals from
    Wadadli. It appears that he has headed to the
    coast in mid-coast Maine
    near Port Clyde. The problem is that he
    stopped sending signals about
    six hours before his tag was due to start a duty
    cycle on Wednesday. No
    signals yesterday and none so far today. From
    the previous data it
    appears that he headed in to shor and may
    have hauled out. This may
    have shut his tag down if he stayed out of the
    water. It may also mean
    that his tag was damaged somehow when he
    got to shore, or he scraped the
    thing off on a rock someplace. In any event time
    will tell if we get
    any more signals.

    I have sent these maps and the data to the folks
    at MAL as they have a
    number of volunteers in the area and I have
    asked them to see if they
    can check the coast in the areas of his last
    transmissions. Given how
    sparse the population is up there he could be
    ashore without anyone
    reporting it.

    Hopefully he is just sleeping on a warm rock
    and we will wake him up and
    get him to go back to work.

    I'll check the data tomorrow,althou I will be gone
    next week (at the
    same meeting you are going to Mike). So I may
    not be able to check
    data. Maybe I can pull some strings at the
    meeting.

    later,
