GMN hosted the Iridium communications for our 2005 'Ocean Frontiers 1000 Hour Day' expedition, and we are very glad indeed to have them onboard again for the 2008 continuation. GMN is providing us with their email compression software xGate to enable us to efficiently send & receive Emails live from the expedition via our tiny ASUS Eee PC, linked to our Iridium satellite mobile phone.

One of the best things about our 2005 expedition was the ability GMN gave us to share our experiences with the outside world as it happened, and will be doing the same this time around. We used their brilliant XGate and iScribe software - check out on their web site below.
