Actually, Make That An UBER-Nerd!
How cool is this? Wait don't answer that. Just read;
" Thanks Richard for passing this along. Mr. Akins, that is still the
big $64,000 question. We are very much convinced via communications
intelligence (COMINT) from the midget sub itself, that they had
survived the attack. There were two radio transmissions received by
the mother submarine - one after nightfall on the 7th and the second
just after midnight on the 8th. Now, what has happened. I think one
way of determining is to conduct a Line of Sight (LOS) analysis using
some sophisticated geospatial information system (GIS) software. The
process would involve positioning the mother sub in her approximate
position near the rendezvous coordinates and then move the midget
submarine through the interior locks of the harbour to see were an HF
transmission would be free from the surrounding terrain and vegetation
of the Oahu."
"Unfortunately, the Navy has banned any attempts to conduct sonar
soundings through the side locks, and I doubt if they would entertain
such an attempt. Also, it would cost a great deal of money."
"Not sure if this helps you. I and my other "Gang of Four" would be
more than happy to entertain your questions and critique.

Mr. Rodgaard was kind enough to email me AGAIN after attending a ceremony this evening that had two PH survivors in attendance. He also cautioned me about a point of speculation, not contained in this entry, until other possibilities can be eliminated.
I'm going to be UP all night thinking about this! :~D
