Two local Electronic Technician (ET) candidates were hired for a 2-month contract for the leg and were given tours of the facilities and equipment they were expected to support.

Marisat-B hardware was installed in the ship's radio room with the help of Marine Computer Specialist (MCS) Stevens and supervised by Dr. Merrill from ODP. Liquid nitrogen dewars were filled promptly and cold weather jackets were returned from the cleaners. A new Ashtech/GLONASS GPS receiver replaced the one in service in the underway lab which is linked to the Winfrog navigation system. An updated version of the JANUS database was installed with the help of the MCSs who stayed during the port call.
