Hello, Firstly I'd like to say that I admire what you're doing here, it seems awesome. I've just bought a sail boat and would like to use it to travel, at least around Europe, maybe someday further. My question is : can I use pskmail as an Internet provider or not ? The main problem I see is the cost of the hardware. I just have an SSB receiver which should be enough to get the weather forecast sometimes but no more... The transceivers I've seen are more than a thousand of bucks, and I really can't do that. I tried to find more informations, but I couldn't find like a list of the "compatible" hardware. What would be the cheapest transceiver suitable for pskmail ? Is there somewhere to get used ones ? The next problem is that I doesn't know anything about ham radio, except that you can talk with people far away ! :-) Do you think it will be a lot of work, to learn to use pskmail, starting from ground zero ? Also my boat is made of steel, does it have an incidence ? There is already an antenna, a single wire going to the top of the mast, near but not parallel to the backstay. Would that be sufficient ? Last but not least, it says that to transmit you need a license... I'm french, how should I get it, will it be expensive ? Well I hope it's not too much questions, but I couldn't find any answers on the web... With my best regards.
