Practical Sailor Article: HF SSB Radio. Response by a BCA Doner 1 H. Bacon Hi Hugh,Lots to think about in your message.I recently sailed the Atlantic on BCA member Dick Leigthon's Prout 39 catamaran Van Kedisi. We used SSB and Sailmail. However, when Dick added up the whole cost of purchasing, installing, and learning the SSB, Pactor modem, and all the rest, he was left feeling that Satnav might have been a better option.Due to cost, it seems like long-term cruisers are still thinking either/or for SSB versus Sat Phone. I find it interesting that you are still recommending both.Cheers,David Greer

Canadian mail forwarding service? 1 S. Wood Have you checked out Mail Boxes Etc.  They provide you with a mailing address and I believe will also forward.  They have several offices around BC and are affiliated with UPS. http://www.mbe.com/ps/Pages/ms.aspx
