    Sending Nav Info

    Goal:  to send the current position while traveling around the world via SSB 
    radio automatically every hour to an email address.
    Possible solution: read location from a GPS via NMEA into a laptop, then 
    create a short email with this information in it and send it out under 
    computer control via a SSB marine radio into the internet.  (I'm new to the 
    SSB world so I do not know quite how this is to be done, but I am starting to 
    research it all...)
    Does anyone have any experience with trying to do something like this?  It is 
    an interesting blend of old (SSB) and new (GPS/Internet) techologies...
    Ideas?  Thoughts?  Witty remarks?  ;-)
