That makes for september 29, october, november untill yesterday december 29...... last SPOT contact was July 26 ...... pfffff
Only people in Argentina can answer this. Given language and cultural differences, I would be very very cautious in interpreting any resulting communication.

Possibly maybe but not highly likely Movistar could track the signal IF the signal came from a Movistar mast (Movistar (Telefonica) is a major company in the EU, e.g.). But it is highly likely that the signal was roamed (from another operator/network) and so Movistar may have no such information in their records.

Police forces are capable of getting such details cross border / cross operators, where technology allows. Given the delay, you may consider asking your local authorities to step in and start an official inquiry.

Now she is trying to find the right way to officials to get to this information.
I had a similar experience when trying to solve a complex billing issue on a Movistar Argentina cell account in the name of a person who had died. The easiest way around was to change the name in the account with a power of attorney (presumably the husband left one) in favor of someone who was still alive, and then have that person talk to Movistar on his own right.

Re: S/V MARATONGA missing in Atlantic

Hi All,

No news from Maratonga or her crew. Mobile msg was a red herring. No message was sent after all. Family is now working to try and get satellite pic from day of dissapearance. Nobody wants to send Navtex anymore

Hope keeps them going

Carla

Re: S/V MARATONGA missing in Atlantic

Thank you for the update. Chances are slim, I think but hope lasts to the end.
