Satellite Communications Information Evening

Are you ready for the upcoming changes to the regulations for sat phone communications or do you need to upgrade for extended cruising in remote areas?

Join us 1830hrs Tuesday 1 June as Jon Cornish and his team from Electrotech present a comprehensive Information Evening on the equipment available for satellite communications and the many options for connection to the Iridium and Inmarsat satellite networks. They will demonstrate how to correctly install, connect and operate this equipment.

Latest technology on display will include the versatile handheld Iridium 9575 (Extreme) and fixed Lars Thrane LT3100 for large terminals like the Sailor Cobham Fleet 100, capable of Broadband Access or Fleet Broadband.

Even the more basic units nowadays have data access to email, weather forecasts, weather routing like PredictWind, GRIB files, position reporting, tracking, messaging and more with Bluetooth and WiFi accessibility for your smartphones and computers.

Learn about GMDSS VSAT and other Global Safety options as well as air-time plans, use of local or international phone numbers and how best to manage them.

There will be a range of equipment on display on the night with the Electrotech team on hand to answer your many questions.
