Don w2xb Don w2xb Member ✭✭

When operating dxepition etc. How do you get the internet connection? Satellite? 
Just an old timer trying to understand.

    Typically INMARSAT and a BGAN self contained terminal.

    Has coverage to about 60N and 60S although at the limits its coverage is intermittent and even lower bandwidth.

    Thanks Stu,

    Yep, Google is your friend.  It's not inexpensive but in the overall cost structure of a DXpedition (at least today's versions), its a rounding error.

    If you're asking how a 6000-series could be used in DXPedition environments, no internet is required. Minimal LAN infrastructure only.

Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu. From there you will be able to pick one style. Nothing defaults to paragraph. An inline formatting menu will show up when you select text. Hit tab to get into that menu. Some elements, such as rich link embeds, images, loading indicators, and error messages may get inserted into the editor. You may navigate to these using the arrow keys inside of the editor and delete them with the delete or backspace key.
