Some of us need to stay in touch from remote locations while we are out enjoying cruising in the Northwest or offshore. When cell phones won't due, Satellite is our next best option. Luckily the costs are coming down and there are different options now available. Local expert, Jeff Thomassen and his wife Katie from Ocens will join Seattle Boat Show LIVE on Thursday, February 18th from 7pm to 8pm to give us a complete update on the different options for data, text and voice communications using the different satellite networks and devices now available for purchase or rental. Jeff's company, Ocens, provides satellite communications for many of the oceanic sailing races and global cruisers who need to keep in touch when out at sea.
