Eva Report
11/14/2014
Digby Tarvin

Eva Number:
09
Eva Date:
2014-11-14
Time Slot:
laterAM
Purpose:
Investigate possible sampling points at the way point 0518340 4251044,
while conducting regular radio reports to asses the quality of the
communications along the route. The EVA was also to provide more
practice on the ATVs and further assessing the reliability of the the
ATVs which have so far not given any trouble.
Narrative:
The river crossing at the second way point was easily discernible, but
the co-ordinates read from the map were about 400m east of the current
road, suggesting that the road may not be exactly as marked on the
map. Proceeded to way point three, found nothing interesting and
returned to the river crossing. Then established communications by
moving to a elevated position. Then went on foot foot to locate the
exact position of way point two. Communications was possible at that
location. Permafrost recordings were taken at that location. At this
location, one EVA member had a mishap which resulted in a broken
headset cable. As the sampling was copleted, it started to rain so the
EVA began making its way back to the hab. Communications were found to
be highly terrain dependent and varied markedly over short distances.
