Re: E-Mail while crusing

check out sailmail web site. other advantages of ssb is getting weather and being able to communicate to other boats. still a good option. once you have it doesn't cost. fees for services are low c/w satphone. probably won't obsolete for awhile as commercial boys use it. can rent satphone for a given trip. Once service fees come down satphone probably will be major way cruisers communicate but not there yet.
