Hail To The NOAA Ship Gordon Gunter


A hat tip to the crew of the NOAA ship Gordon Gunter who sent along this photo of them proudly displaying their Amver pennant.

Pictured from left to right are LTJG Ryan Wattam, LT Hector Casanova, NOAA fisheries biologist Carrie Horton, LCDR Brian Parker, and ENS Michael Robbie.

In the words of the Gunter crew, "Amver, we don't leave port without it!"

Congratulations on earning your Amver pennant and thank you for sending the picture.

What about your ship? If you send us your photo we will be happy to post it to the Amver blog!

I AM THE PORT METEOROLOGICAL OFFICER IN JACKSONVILLE, FL. I WORK WITH THE "SEAS" PROGRAM AND INSTALL AMVER/SEAS PGM ON NUMEROUS SHIPS. I NOW HAVE HAD 2 OCCASSIONS OF SHIPS REPORTING THAT WHEN ENTERING THEIR WEATHER OBSERVATIONS INTO THE PROGRAM, THE PROGRAM GIVES THEM AN ERROR STATING THAT THEY ARE SEVERAL MILES OFF OF THE ENTERED MOVEMENT REPORT IN AMVER. THEY HAVE STATED THAT IT WILL GIVE A NUMBER SUCH AS 421 NM'S OFF COURSE. THE SHIPS HAVE BEEN ON THEIR INTENDED COURSES BUT THE PROGRAM STATES THEY ARE NOT. BOTH OF THE VERSIONS OF THE PROGRAM ARE THE LATES VERSION AVAILABLE 8.0. HAS ANYONE HAD ANY FEEDBACK ON YOUR END WITH THIS SAME PROBLEM? IF SO, IS THERE A REMEDY/FIX?

Dear Jacksonville PMO,
Thank you for the question regarding Amver/SEAS error messages. I will forward your message to the Amver technical team for review. Glad to see the PMO's are reading the Amver blog!

Cheers, The Amver Team
