Dawg...well you can do 9600 baud...but I don't call that full access. Fine for email and some ftp stuff but I've done 9600 on my cell phone and internet was simply too painful. Funny...I still remember my FAST 9600 baud modem...course it was a text and cga world back then!

I believe Iridium is only 4800 with Gstar 9600 and you lose the signal every 10 minutes!
BethLeonard & Evans S. use Iridium to send in pix and stories but at $1.50 a minute or so...even that can get expensive at 4800!

No longer posting. Reach me by PM!
