Cellular/Wireless connection

There are all kinds of ways to get to your email and the internet with celluar, I have a voicestream (T-mobile) account and a motorolla p280 phonr that came with software to organize contacts on the computer and phone, it also came with the cable neede to connect to the serial port on the laptop. T-mobile has coverage all over the states and no long distance charges, I have used this config in several states and american samoa. The speed not great but almost always get a decent connections

I posted on this thread before the masthead cell antenna was installed. Since installation I have had excellent reception at my marina 100% of the time. No other cell phone in the marina works reliably and some not at all.

The masthead antenna makes a huge difference.
