One of our younger volunteers, Nari, is shown testing the buoy system which includes the dish antenna, receiver and audio amplifier for the shore side of the operation. Note the "accoustic pool" we have been using to simulate the ocean environment. Everything is working well and we hope to launch in the morning if the weather is good.
The "shaka" is a Hawaiian greeting. Obama used it to wave to the Punahou band at the Inauguration Parade. We use it to say Aloha and stay tuned for live whale songs soon!!!!
