joe, I have cingular wireless, national plan, and it never failed me from the North East to Florida. Maxed it out about six miles off shore in GA. I guess there were some other spots, but its certainly cheeper then a SSB.
where are you sailing out of/ to?

Hi Paul. I sail out of Annapolis, and I''m considering a trip to Maine this summer. I have ATT now, and I''ll compare rates, coverage, etc. I guess I thought I could get a signal a little farther offshore, but six miles certainly takes care of any anchorage you might be in. Joe
