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.

    Incidentally, I take exception to DeLorme’s Spot vs PLB comparison, down a ways on this company blog entry:
    What they left out is that PLBs are built to a type approved and much higher standard, they use a more global and more reliable satellite system, and they communicate directly to the COSPAS-SARSAT rescue system.
    That said, here’s a neat example of the DeLorme/Spot messaging in action:

    Dear Ben, you may also check the website of DeLorme regarding reviews of the PN60W+SPOT. Next year in Europe. We are trying to get a unit at METS to show it to the visitors. Also with the HUG. Best regards, Reinier Zwolsman, Technautic.

  3. Dear Ben,
    I have tested the PN60W+SPOT in the Netherlands and I can tell you that even driving in the car or situated inside my house the communication of the PN60W and the SPOT communicator went perfectly well. During METS we will be showing the PN60W+SPOT at our booth and hopefully a dummy of the HUG. Our company name is Technautic and our booth number is 1.127
    Best regards,
    Reinier Zwolsman – Technautic
