    Connecting

    Connecting:

    Contact us today to get your service started!

    CruiseEmail now uses its own developed "CruiseEmail Software" and accepts the previous "Seamail Software" for connecting to all its 16 coastal Public Coast Stations.

    The software can be obtained when you sign up for CruiseEmail service from the by contacting CruiseEmail either by phone 304-653-4661 or e-Mail to "sysop@cruiseemail.com".

    WGM will basically support all types of TNC's [Terminal Node Controllers].

    You can register through the web site. This registration form with service agreement must be completed prior to connecting.

    Your e-Mail text subscription service is unlimited and can be used any time and not limited to a 24-hour day.

    Special detail weather information to specific areas, JPG’s, and attachments, there is a minimal per message charge.

    Should for some reason the communications link break, you will not be charged for that transmission.

    Tune to the assigned frequency and wait for a signal that can be heard from the station that you tuned.

    This signal sounds like a wooble sound. Do not transmit while you hear this signal; as you will interfere with another vessel.

    It is important to KEEP the speaker volume open while your connection is in progress. Operators at the CruiseEmail network control stations may need to get a message to you should there be some distortion on your signal. They are ready to assist you on the same operating frequency.

    The tuning signal will sound like warbling continuous tone lasting about 10 seconds. With your modem in FEC mode you should be able to fine tune the radio so that the tuning bar on the modem shows the LEDS at the extreme ends of the scale illuminated. When your radio is properly tuned and no one else is transmitting, you may link to the station.

    Should it not be possible to get to a Internet Service, you will be able to connect one time on the network to request a registration form, and payment procedure.

    Once this is completed, you can now log on again to send or receive traffic.

    Contact us today to get your service started!
