Re: What's the future for Sat Coms

... Can you use the Sat for emergencies, ( I'm at sea and my boat is sinking, Help!! )?
This message group - and my Web site - promote the amateur FM sats - and none of them are used for emergencies.

The odds that your 911 situation occurs at the same time a ten-minute sat pass occurs is, well, rather slim. And we do NOT have a geosynchronous ham sat available.

HF and sat phones are commonly used by your sailing/boating crowd!
