Re: SSB Winlink vs Sailmail
I use Winlink, with Airmail2000 software. The main advantage for me is that the system is free to use. The only drawback is that with ham radio, you can't use the email to conduct business. Also if you enter a country that requires a reciprocal fee, such as Mexico, you have to pay up before transmitting on any ham band. I have heard that coverage was a little better with Sailmail. But the friends that I talk to that went on extended cruises told me that they rarely had trouble finding a Winlink station.
