Thanks, Mila and N.D. Risener -Hi Robert.
The skip I was talking about was concerning Titanic, not Californian.
I have read that for some time before the collision they could not have communicated with Cape Race due to the atmospheric conditions.
I am more or less in agreement with both of you concerning the skip.
It could have been favorable to Titanic, but not to Californian at that time.
But it is not always stationary.
It could switch around the other way around where the conditions favored the ships just oppositely....one could and the other could not communicate with Cape Race.
