|Where are you?
||The best place to see where we are is to go to the map page.
|What is the weather like?
||When we are underway, we put the current weather information on the current position page.
|How do you communicate?
||We have an Icom M-802 marine radio with a radio modem. It is much slower than dial-up. We can only send short text e-mails with it. We also have a GSM phone with a SIM card that we can use to call home when we are near land.
|Can you receive pictures?
||Not while we are at sea. If you want to send us HTML mail with stationary or pictures of the kid(s) or pets, please use our PHOENIX e-mails.
|What is your PHOENIX e-mail?
||The general e-mail is email@example.com
|How often will you receive your PHOENIX e-mail?
||We will receive our PHOENIX e-mail while we are in port. If we are in a particular port for several days, we'll check it regularly while we are there.
|What if I send a long e-mail to the boat?
||The boat e-mail is set to cut off long messages.
|Can I send you an e-mail while you are underway?
||Yes. You will need to send it through one of our communications managers. They will consolidate all of the questions and mail them to us. We'll respond.
|Why does the "as of" time use Z?
||Z is the timezone designator for ZULU time or UTC (Coordinated Universal Time). UTC is based on the Prime Meridian, which is 0 degrees longitude. The Prime Meridian is also called the Greenwich Meridian because it passes through Greenwich, England.
