    Hi Reijer,

    Thank you for your post.

    Looking into the vessel you are referring to, Sunset Rpose with MMSI nr. 244650937, I can see that we have received the last position form her 2019-11-03 08:52 UTC when she was in the area of Area: UKC - North Sea.

    The lack of Updated Positions of a vessel can be a result of a number of factors.
    Signal strength, functional transponder, local (vessel area) and surrounding (nearby stations) weather conditions, temperatures, traffic
    and the satellite constellation frequency are some of the most important ones.
    You can learn more about them here:

    Kindly keep in mind that if your vessel is carrying a Class B transponder, this may effect the frequency in her Positional data as well. Such units are smaller, simpler and lower cost compared to Class A transponders but their signal is weaker making it harder for satellites to pick-up AIS messages coming from them.

    However, could you please let me know what the current position of your vessel is? That would help me to further be able to review the case. 

    I hope you find this helpful and if you have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out again.
    I remain at your disposal,
