[aprssig] OT: Broadband internet in remote locations

I'll keep that in mind if I ever decide to upgrade mine. I hope to have DSL
or Cable in the next 2-3 years and I think this one should do just fine for
that time.

As far as the comments in relation to depending on the internet it's not a
matter of dependance or not, it's a matter of using using the tools that you
have at hand. Do not depend on one thing, have them all ready, tested,
proven and awaiting until you need them.

Most emergencies/disasters will not wipe out all form of communications to a
point where amateur radio is our only hope, if that time comes it will be a
sad day. For those who belive in getting ready for that you can contact me
off list and I can point you in the right direction to some very active
survival mailing lists! Not that I frequent those....

We tested a few of them and had the best luck with the TopGlobal MB6800.
Contrary to what some have said at 3gstore.com, they are upgrading the
firmware whenever a new USB device is released.  We have tested it with the
new 727 and it works fine.
