    Default connecting

    I would like to connect without wires to a newspaper syndicate, weekly, and to a magazine where I regularly am published on a monthly basis.

    If I can find a regular phone with an open connecting wire I have not had any trouble, connecting through email or the Bitware program. Often I cannot find an open connection, and wireless seems the best solution. I will be on the road in a trailer for AT LEAST THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS AND I NEED A SOLUTION.

    Default A return to the RTA roots!

    Road Greetings Pat,

    >I would like to connect without wires to a newspaper syndicate, weekly,
    and to a magazine where I regularly am published on a monthly basis.

    Your query is the exact matching cause of how the RW arrived at this juncture of time and space. Megan Edwards, (RTA co-creator & Editor) was a weekly columist for a Los Angeles newspaper in 1994 and our holy grail to this point has been the quest of finding ways to file articles and stories from the road.

    What wireless phone are you now using? I have just returned from the annual cellular industry show and I may have some new ideas. I will be posting some new(er) solutions in 2-3 days. In the meantime, let me know what kinds of PC and wireless equipment you are planning to use.

    No problem, (well, a few problems), where will you be working and traveling?

    Default Wireless Cxn for Internet

    I'm sure Mark will have a better idea of new technology which would help make this easier (Please let me know when you're done, Mark!) However, I use a Nokia 6120, with a 3Com Cellular/Fax modem. The phone is digital, but automatically switches to analog for data. The cable for connecting the phone to the modem was $100 itself, though. The max. speed is 9600 baud, which is deadly slow, and uses up alot of time.BTW, I'm a full time RV'er, but I have a regular land line phone at a seasonal site, and have internet access at work. So, unless I'm traveling, I stick to those, and when I'm travelling, I've had no problem finding connections (i.e. Flying J Travel Plazas, campgrounds, etc.) I hope this is helpful to you.
