Iridium TEXT messages…

You will need my sat phone number which you can get by emailing me. Although the screen will say 160 chars - I only get the first 108 (...its the usual IT screw up)







Each day I will dial up MailAsail using the sat phone, to download GRIB files (Weather data)

At the same time I should be able to update what they call a web diary, which shows a map with my location.

You can see the map at the MailAsail site here.

You can also zoom in on the map below – the points look offset – but when you zoom right in they are actually placed where the boat moored or anchored. (It’s a bug in Google MyMaps)
