A previous discussion's got me thinking and challenging my assumptions (which is a good thing - usually...)
Although clearly useful if already mounted on a cruising boat, I left wondering about the utility of purchasing and installing an SSB on a boat without one.
It seems that as sat phones and services become more robust and less expensive, the relative value of SSB to cruisers will fall.
What do you smarter folks think -- has the SSB become the nautical equivalent of the six-button AM dash radio?
