Re: Internet on Sailboat

I do short time trades also. I have done so for 12 years out here. 19 countries. Best internet was Honduras and Guatemala. Worst Bequia, Martinique and St Martin. I managed in all of them.
You might try brackets if your are worried your position might go south. Kind of a safety stop if you internet goes down at the wrong time. Worked for me.
