Pendana’s communication ability is on par with much larger commercial vessels. She is equipped with an HF Radio, three VHF Radios and most importantly a KVH VSAT Communication System. As such Pendana will have telephone, email, radio and even HDTV communications while underway.
On advice from the great Ken Williams (kensblog.com) we have also decided to carry a handheld Iridium satelite phone aboard Pendana just in case our KVH VSAT system fails.
