    Matt the FFM I use varies as we have several different ones at the Aquarium, today I dove with the interspiro. All of our FFMs are equiped with OTS coms. I assumed (incorrectly I take it) that the reason you were diving with the FFM was to allow for communication. The only tricky thing with the FFMs is that it can be difficult to clear your ears with them on. Have you experienced any problems with this yet?

    I actually was just telling 2'tours a couple days ago that I thought you might be plotting :devil: a dive at the aquarium during the event in February. I am glad to see I was right :D I will see if I can find the full size pics of my avitar to send you. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.

    Hi Polly,
    How long have you worked in an aquarium? I hear from Blane that you may be coming to my fundraiser, thats far out! And even help me with a dive? That would be so cool. If the dive thing works out I will mostly likely be doing a dive in the very beginning, shortly before the fundraiser starts. Thats the plan right now anyway.

    The reason I use a FFM is because it's the only way I can do it! i love that FFmask, it is so awesome. My Neptune, I've found so far, is pretty easy to pop my ears in. I don't have comms yet, I got the mask on my own, but am working on getting those comms and full face masks donated or lent to us, but no luck yet.

    I look forward to seeing your avatar pic. Take care and talk to you later.

    Matt

    Matt,

    Just stumbled across your thread, it's a honour to know you, even through the web.

    Keep going, and look forward to hearing of your successful ocean dive. It'll be worth the wait!

    An excellent story to read.

    Thanks,

    Matt,

    Just a quick note to let you know that I've been looking cool as **** recently wearing one of your shirts (grey polo)!

    Proud to wear it, too! I'll post a pic shortly, hope all's going well!

    Cheers,

    I saw your thread and watched the interveiw, I think it is amazing. I wish you the best of luck, especially on your open water dives. You are an inspiration to many.

    Keep on going and have fun!
