PACTOR is a radio radio modulation mode used by amateur radio operators.There are many communications options for the voyaging mariner. One approach is using a high frequency single sideband (HF SSB) radio and a digital modem. This setup allows you to use the SBB for voice and for sending e-mail. Icom's latest marine SSB transceiver, the model IC-M802, is popular with the voyaging community, as it is legally usable without modification on both the marine HF and amateur radio HF frequencies (with appropriate licenses). Combine this radio with the SCS Pactor modem, and world-wide e-mail is a reality. 1) the radio controller or display unit 2) the external speaker and 3) the radio main unit or electronics. The handheld microphone plugs in to the controller. Prefabricated 16-foot cables are supplied to connect the controller and external speaker to the main unit. None of the three parts are weatherproof, so they must be mounted in protected areas. Mount the main unit as near to the external antenna tuner as possible. ------------- YEs you can connect the pactor modem to your ham radio. there are many but you can go with SailMail's SSB-Pactor radio network. The Pactor-modem that you purchase, however, can be used on digital networks run by Ham Radio operators. Thus if you are a Ham, or if you become one, you can use your Pactor-modem on the Ham networks as well. Many SailMail members have developed an interest in radio from their use of SailMail and have subsequently become licensed Hams and use the Ham WinLink system as well as SailMail. Conversely, many Hams who use the Ham WinLink system have joined SailMail in order to use SailMail for business-related communications that cannot be handled via Ham radio.
SailMail members use the AirMail software to access the SailMail network, which is the same software that is used by Hams to access the WinLink network. Therefore cruisers who use both SailMail and WinLink can conveniently keep all of their messages in the same set of folders on their onboard PC, and only have to deal with one software program.
The Ham networks offer greater geographic coverage and contain more stations than SailMail or any other HF network. Further, the ham networks do not have any limits on connect-time, and permit users to send and receive file attachments like images and binaryexecutables. By comparison, SailMail has usage limits of 90 minutes per week and only passes certain attachments (e.g. weather data). Note, however, that while it is appropriate to send business-related messages over the SailMail system, business messages are not permitted on the Ham networks.
The SailMail system does not incorporate either a Ham Radio style bulletin board system or a land-line bulletin board system. Instead, the SailMail system only forwards plain-text internet email messages (and certain attachments) via SSB radio. (Note, however, that SailMail can be used to retrieve weather data by using the SailDocs auto-responder)
The SailMail stations are set up in the same configuration as that used on the Ham Radio digital networks for many years; each transceiver is hooked through an automatic antenna tuner to a single antenna. Each transceiver scans a dedicated set of frequencies and can connect to only one user at a time.

Can I use my Pactor-modem on other commercial marine email systems?Yes, the SCS Pactor Modems can be used for other commercial radio networks in addition to the Ham networks. KielRadio modems can be used on the SailMail system if set up correctly.

Check the hose for something clogging it. It will be past the flattened area (by that I mean further from the steam cleaner). It sounds like something got stuck in the hose, and as the steam cleaner kept sucking on the hose, it caused the hose to flatten.

Iron spits out rusty water. The iron is a Rowenta

Fill it with a mix of 50% white vinegar and 50% water. Let it set for 30 minutes and steam it out for about 2 minutes. Unplug it and dump it. After it cools colpletely, fill it with water and steam it out. The rust is coming from your water supply, not the iron.

Water and iron heats up but no steam comes out.

there is most likely a small port where some particles have clogged...fill reservoir with vinegar and water (50/50) and allow to soak 24 hrs, then reheat then shake vigorously to drain then rinse then retry
