SSB And/Or Satellite

Nice article on the value of SSB radio, and why you should not be replacing SSB by satphone technology.

Although we had bought our single sideband radio primarily for safety, we've discovered that it's also our central source for communication, as well as entertainment. Now, after a lot of experience on the water, we've come to realize the value of the SSB to our cruising. The sat phone and the SSB actually serve two very different purposes. Ultimately one day, we'd like to have both aboard.
