Does anyone boat on the Chesapeake and use a wireless card (i.e. the kind you get through cellular providers) for their laptop computers? What kind of coverage are people getting in the upper Chesapeake? Hell, if it works even moderately well, I may never work on land again!

Excellent. I have an existing contract with Verizon for my regular cellphones. I've used the tether before, but I think that in the long-run I need both cellphone and data simultaneously. For the most part, I think that I need it closer to shorelines.

T37, I didn't even think about the benefit of logging into live radar. Genius!

I'm pleased to report that I ended up getting a Verizon UM175 USB modem for $60/5GB/month and I'm pretty pleased so far with performance and coverage. Denise ... I looked at the Verizon coverage map and Great Oaks is one of the relatively few places that coverage shows as weak/or none in the upper Chesapeake. - David
