Yuri, UT1FG/MM, is back to sea on the Vessel Seahorse.
It is currently sailing from Algiers to Morocco where
it will load cargo.  The plan is to sail to a USA port
in the Gulf to be determined.

There are quite a few ships named Seahorse.  The
MMSI number is 538007572.

Yuri is using the Elk antenna but only has RG58 coax
feeding it.  Even so he reports working K3SZH on AO-7
today.  If he doesn't find coax in Morocco, perhaps we
can get some coax to him when he arrives in a USA port.
So he is likely to do better on a Mode B satellite rather
than one with a UHF downlink.  He has keps for AO-91,
AO-85 and CAS-4B.

Please wait for a while before sending your logsheets.
He will likely be able to mail qsl's when he docks in the
