Staying connected

So is there a way to be connected to the internet whey you are out beyond the mobile networks? I live in a rural area and have satellite internet but it requires a very well-aimed and steady receiver that would not work on a moving platform.

Re: Staying connected

For simple text e-mail, maybe very small file transfers, you can use HF radio with a Pactor modem (or winmor if you have a ham license), or you can use a satellite telephone.

If you want a high-speed internet connection when you are beyond the range of wifi and cellular phone service, then the expense is extremely high--startup costs in the tens of thousands, and monthly fees in the thousands.
