Who was the sender?
Boatswain’s Mate First Class from a Coast Guard cutter my Electronics shop supports Who was the receiver?
Myself and two other technicians What was the message?
The BM1 reported a discrepancy with the AIS transceiver on the cutter. It was reported the transceiver was inoperable and would not turn on. What channel was used to send the message?
An online program that reports discrepancies from the cutter to the Electronics shop to be corrected. What was the misunderstanding that occurred?
The discrepancy had been corrected the day before, however the discrepancy had not been updated in the program. Techs reported to the boat to find the discrepancy already corrected, wasting government time and money. How could the misunderstanding have been avoided?
The tech that corrected the discrepancy should not have assumed everyone knew he’d corrected the discrepancy. Myself, and the other technicians should have asked the whole shop if the discrepancy had been corrected.
