And another, with a wrinkle.
My Wife will be continuing a phone
practice. She will have about 12 hours a week on the phone. The first year we will be in the US (big boat) and Canada
(small boat.). So I've got to rig up 2 boats.
Mostly she will be using her Verizion phone. I also have a WiriePro on the big boat which will give me a WiFi
or GSM connection so she could use Skype.
The other option is to get a Weboost type of rig, but that's more money
and I've got to move it boat to boat and between carriers. The Mobil "legal" version of the WeBoost requires you to sit within a foot or so of the repeater. The fixed version is not "legal" and will cover the whole boat. This is to limit extraneous signals for screwing up other folks, biput since we are on a steel
boat it is not really a practical issue, but a regulatory one.
I have no idea how to estimate practical/billable (vs. theoretical) data usage for a voice call.
