Email & Communication

We are getting ready to leave on an extended trip in 2006 and have been busy getting our boat ready. I''m wondering what sailers are using for communications today. I have been looking at SSB and am suffering sticker shock. Around $4k by the time you add the PACTOR modem. Them if you don''t have a HAM license you will still pay about $250 per year for email. Is this still the best way to go? Satphones and a newer email service from Skymate seem reasonable. Startup cost is much less anyway. Our first year will be around the US and Caribbean.
