Hi Jack
Yes we tend to be on the heavy side for comms
We do "some" travel coastal, but we are equiooed for just about any travel anywhere.
We download the weather maps via the "internet" if we are close in. If not we DL them off of HF SSB
We are trying out the starband today and it seems great.Although the auto tracking for the small dish needs to be re-tuned.
We run all Icom gear for the Comms and Ham Band we use Yasue {sp} and Ten Tec.. simply because we have it.
We have a Sat Phone havent used it since the Alaska trip, it tends to be real expensive..
A simple phone patch from the Ham Bands is about all we need EXCEPT if we really need it.
