best place to buy m802 ssb and pactor 4?

Need to buy a system, we are flying through the US (stopping in Colorado and then New Jersey) and then on to the boat which is currently in St Martin.
The last system we bought (10 years ago) came from a place near San Francisco, cant remember the name and was ready installed with Sail Mail. Any help with well priced suppliers would be appreciated. Have emailed Dockside Marine in Florida already.

Try these guys.

Pactor-II/III Radio Modem sales, FCC License filing, Marine SSB & HAM Radio Net schedules &amp frequencies.

You might also contact forum member btrayfors. Not sure if he sells new units but has good deals on used equipment.

I agree with Skipmac. When I did my research three years ago Dockside was my choice. I went with the pactor 4 and the system as worked really well. I got my HAM licence and used winmail for my weather information and emails. I'm now in New Zealand and have had great connectivity all the way from the eastern seaboard and the Caribbean.
