The sounds of whales and rain

We installed a reconditioned receiver at the dish antenna in Kihei yesterday.  Performance has been better than ever these past 30 hours or so.  The songs last night were described by listener Kate Holt in California as " a beautifully woven tapestry of sound."  Tonight the sound of a fairly heavy rainfall on the ocean can be heard along with the whale vocalizations.

The system is working again

A trip to the buoy by kayak yesterday before sunset corrected an intermittent technical glitch.  The system is working well now.  We expect to do some fine tuning of the system in the next day or produce less occasional static and improve audio quality.  Thanks for listening!
