Goodbye Karma18 Jul 2013
There have been no further transmissions from Karma since we last wrote a blog on 4 July. During the last transmission we received on 16 June the temperature was as expected but the voltage was low. That was the last information we received and given that it has now been over a month and there have been no further signals, as we would expect if Karma was moving south, we have to accept that either the tag has failed or that Karma has died, the exact cause of which will always remain a mystery.
