No. You re not reading it right.
Get some glasses
OK I just said that to use the little drawing
The idea of Skymate is when you are off shore out of internet
range. Its a replacement for HF radio
We want to for our passages. Including a secure means to comunicate with the authorities while going to the Red Sea. HF and VHF
Skymate is also vastly cheaper than HF and pactor modem
We would use the lower plan USD$34 per month and get weather when needed only, every few days if available.
The daily tracking and the sms/email is its real use.
Send or receive 20,000 characters per month for just $34.99. Additional data costs only $1.90 per 1000 characters.
Send or receive 8,000 characters per month for just $17.99. Additional data costs only $2.25 per 1000 characters.
