Test update from our Single Sideband Radio (SSB)

Ok- this is a test to see if we can send Blog updates via SSB email (sailmail). We queue up our emails in the software, and then connect to a series of land radio stations by bouncing radio waves off the ionosphere. The stations are located around the world to form a network- with one located in Friday Harbor in the San Juans where one of the founders has a property.

So if the interwebs, single side band radio and ionosphere are all sympatico at the moment- A blog post may well appear. In the future, once we're dialed in, we hope to be able to send automated position reports as well!

Beam me up Scotty!
