I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but I've looked through the forums and read the manual cover to cover several times and still have not found anything.

Anyway, how do I read the radio messages that I receive? The manual mentions the possibility of being given new orders after sending contact/patrol reports. So I send out reports, and then about 15 minutes after I send them my radio operator says "radio message received." So I click on "new contact reports," and it says no new messages received. I figured at this point that checking for new incoming contact reports is not the proper method for reading new radio messages. Is there a way to read these? What's going on?

Yeah, it's pretty silly when the radio operator says "We have recieved a new message sir", yet he won't tell you what the friggin message is.

Press "M" to show the radio messages.

Press the "M" key.

I was missing this too untill I really looked at the keyboard sheet that came with the game.

Is there any reason to SEND reports? All I ever get is "be more agressive" or "good work". Does sending a report give your position away?

From my understanding, sending reports is designed to inform the luftwaffe or other kriegsmarine forces of the ships location.

If there is a nearby base/airfield, there is a chance that "we" (as in germany) might get that pesky merchant after all http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
