There was no response today from Sahula on Tonys maritime ham net. Calls were made on both sides of the Tasman. The last contact was very weak so the radio maybe out of action. I am in touch with Customs in Opua so will advise on arrival. patricia GHRadio.

Signal was just too weak to pick up today. Many tried - from both sides of the Tasman. They will have some weather to deal with still. Calmer tomorrow so they can gather their energy for the weekend front!
