SMS speeds round-up of sailors
:? Still no bloody use if the battery to your phone runs out. How many times have a heard at the table 'Sorry I'm late but I set the mobile to wake me and it went dead overnight'. Never much of an excuse if, like my mobile, it warns me for hours before it finally cuts off.
Good idea to get messages to the personnel ashore quickly. Maybe we could look at it for FRE and when ships are alongside abroad?
It won't be the first time the RN has had to fall back on mobile technology!
I remember being up in the air when we had an engine problem, the ship didn't hear our radio calls on the Guard frequency until we phoned the ships op's room directly, strangely enough they replied straight after!!
They had to resort to the mobile system after the sailors object to electronic leg tagging
