Hi Graham,

Hope you are enjoying your trip. I also have heard breaks in
transmission, but believed this was normal. (I have only begun
properly monitoring the sat last night due to the track taking it
overhead UK very late and as it got earlier the batteries gave up so
it was off - only now is it barely still illuminated when passing)
