If anyone had a clue about this, they would understand that not only the Daily Mail have reported on it, the whole world has.
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing and can make people look very foolish. Yet again, nothing of any substance to offer, just belligerent (look it up Rude) comments.

Moving on from nonsense. Today the Russians have offered assistance (according to RTKlive,) and the UK have deployed another aircraft.(according to the Miami Herald )and The Journal, says hopes are fading, and then this; Missing submarine: Argentina finds new clue as oxygen supply feared to be running out Scroll.in 09:16

There you go , plenty to be going on with !

Its good we've sent help, and its been accepted. Hopefully it will go some way to healing the rift between us and Argentina.

Oh no , it looks like all is lost . They said on the news tonight that an explosion had been detected at the position the sub wasthought to be in, around the time it lost contact .

Put one reply in but it's disappeared. Anyway, British boats have indicator buoys with unique numbers which transmit on 4340Khz. The escape system has been tested to 500ft and it's possible to get out from deeper. Don't know what the Argie setup is. There's also smoke candles and grenades but they are only any use if someone is around to see them or hear them. Batteries are split into loads of cells, about 5ft high and things can go wrong with them but drills nullify most of the effects. They could've been gassing i.e. giving off hydrogen after charging, and something has ignited but this is pure conjecture on my behalf. Only when the boat has been found and checked will we know for sure. Either way my thoughts are with the families of those lost, it's a hard trade. RESURGAM - They shall rise again.

Boy am I behind the times. Got enlightenment on the way it works now which you might find interesting. It's all on satellite now using EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon) on 406Mhz to satellites and a Homing Beacon on 121Mhz. Submerged Signal Ejectors can also be used to release to alert the Global Maritime Distress Safety System to a network of satellites. It looks like the Argies either haven't got the system or indeed they had a sudden emergency about which they could do nothing. RESURGAM
