Windy, dreary Sunday morning. No diving today. I went out yesterday in pretty sloppy conditions.
We took the coach over to Markham Park on Friday to dump the tanks. When we got back, the DataStorm was not working. I made a diagnosis after several experiments. A bad transmit modem. A call to Ground Control confirmed the problem. Luckily, I still had the modem from the original install. When Ground Control sent a replacement for the original defective receive modem, they sent a transmit modem as well. I replaced both as a set. Turns out, the only easily transferrable item in the stack is the transmit unit. I plugged it all up and voila! Internet. I sure am glad we didn't have to wait for a replacement over the weekend. We were already making plans to return to Paradise Island just to have Internet. Connectivity is essential for us. More so for Chris. She can get some billable work done. I need it to support Coach Connect users.
