k1vsk,
You said "The technician license does not give you the privileges for HF so only your wife can operate the radio on the ham bands.".

As I understand it if she is the controll operator any lincensee can use those frequencies. Is this not correct?

sailingdog,
I suspect the services are about the same but as I have not tried any of them. I am interested to know if anyone feels one is better (more available, easier to use, more reliable, etc.) then another. Can you get all you need from the radio or do most people also use sat phones.
