“ The gonio finder was quite helpful and was used for the final localization of the Glider. Our spot tag had issues which greatly complicated matters. However on the successful recovery day the tag behaved.  We got the fist signals from the tag at about 10 nm and started getting intermittant radio direction finding information at about 6 to 7 miles. By about 3 miles we were recieving every ping (90 sec) “ Dennis Stanley
