I see the Sat ph , ssb
post going strong , but think I will be going sat ph.
Forgive my ignorance , but do you just get credit on your sat ph like you do a mobile , and where is the best priced.
The other thread said 50cents per tex message and family
can tex free to you over the net , is this really possible as this is what will sell the sat ph for me 100 %
As far as weather , this is also my main interest and am only just starting to look into and learn ( very little at this point)
So you can download weather from Bouy weather from your sat ph to your lap top.
Do you need a bouy weather subscription as well as a possible compression program .
9555 seems have everything you need in the basic kit to start using for these operations , am I getting this right .
phone , say $1500 or less , xgate $10/ month , tex 50 cents ,$5 for each weather download, plus monthly sat ph connection fee ?? , Its not the cheapest , but seems a simple way of keeping in touch and safe.
