Dora Mac is also equipedd with an Icom SSB-radio (and a Pactor modem for e-mail) but having such good experiences with sat. phone (and the Iridium network which proved to be more reliable than Inmarsat on the Pacific Ocean), we opted for a Iridium Go devise. To place the outer antenna is crusial and placing it on the rail of the flybridge did not give sufficient signalstrength. Instead I tried hoisting up to the spreaders which gave a lot better signal.
