Why SSB? If your cruising plans put you out of sight of land, SSB radio is your lifeline to other cruisers, weather forecasts, friends and family back home, and the local coast guard. Single-sideband radio provides long-range radio communications, distress calling, and access to email and free weather. Communicate with cruisers and other ships thousands of miles away, and join in the all-important cruisers nets. Download weather GRIBs to your computer for safe and effective passage planning. Send and receive email in the middle of the ocean. Most importantly, use the Icom m802s one-button DSC distress calling function to summon help from the local coastguard and EVERY commercial ship in the region, simultaneously, hundreds or thousands of miles away.
