    Hands-On experience with HF Radio for Email, WeatherFAX etc??

    If you've actually used this type of onboard system, can you please drop in and tell us more about your experiences, and the gear you used?

    I understand this basically, from Ham and Broadcast background, but I've never DONE it!
