I have an SSB transciever on my boat which came with the boat when I bought it. I have tried it but not in a disciplined way. Reception seems spotty. A pact I made with my wife when we decided to go cruising was that I would make sure we had reliable communications with our family. E-mail ,voice
even picture transmission if possible. I also have a new laptop. I think globalstar would be a bettersystem than the SSB. I want to talk to the kids, download weather fax from NOAA I need the phone, a usb cable and a rate plan. Phone about 600 cable 60 monthly plan 50/mo.
With SSB I need some kind of pac modem about 6-700 bucks but I am not sure if I am spinning my wheels on this route if I can not get reliable connection. What are pro and cons of each Thanks
