Thanks everyone. Just one more question: Does the Iridium service have an attachment size limit and how does the upload/download speed compare to the HF/pactor III speed? The point being that if it takes the Iridium setup 10 seconds to upload/download 100k (just as an example, since this is the largest file I've ever up or downloaded over airmail and my HF), it is one thing, but if it takes 30 min, it's quite another and has no benefit over the HF.
I have had my entire HF grounding system replaced this summer, and am looking forward to see how that will improve my connections.
