Satellite communications at sea encompass TV and satellite dish receivers, satellite telephones, marine internet and fax receivers, Sirius and XM weather and radio and even EPIRB and SART devices. Being at sea does not mean that a vessel has to be incommunicado. We always need a life line and any means of communication with other vessels and people on land can mean the difference between life and death. It can also help you stay informed, close a business deal, check your email, have fun watching your favorite TV shows or make a distress call. Hey , you can even call your favorite marina to let them know that you want a couple of cold ones as soon as you dock! Be prepared. Satellite communications make boating fun, productive and safe.
