HF e-mail Applications
Keeping in touch with the rest of the world can be challenging in remote locations. There aren't too many cell phone towers in the open ocean! Kantronics comes to the rescue with radio equipment that can provide reliable communications over long distances, without the bulk, complexity, power, and environmental constraints of satellite equipment.
While all Kantronics radio modems/TNC's can communicate digital messages over distances, the HF frequency bands are particularly conducive to longer distance communication, since they don't rely only on line of site transmission. This makes the Kantronics all-mode KAM-XL the most appropriate choice for this application. The KAM-XL has built-in visual confirmation of "free" (channel available) signals of HF e-mail service providers.
