Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Any MSRP or detailed specs on the WebWatch? Specifically weight..

    I’ve got a spec sheet but no pricing, Howard. WebWatch weighs a little under 4 pounds and that dome is 13 inches high and about 12 wide.

    Going to order one today.

    Multi-modal marine data communications is getting to be a busy niche. Note the PDQ One Source that Defender just started advertising here on Panbo. It’s a different animal, including full cell phone booster ability not just a cell data facility separate from your phone service.
