HF / SSB Radio Benefits

"Every day for 59 days Peter accompanied us on our crossing from Panama to Australia via the HF / SSB radio."

"When we had a shroud break, he assisted us on finding a safe haven in times of Covid so we could conduct repairs".

"It was comforting to have Peter to talk to on a daily basis."

"A thousand thanks Peter for your assistance and providing weather reports; it's a big ocean out there!!"
