    My ship is on the USN distribution list and we received our copy of the 2009 Almanac in the first half of 2008, although I cannot recall the exact month.  We are way down the list, so I would say that there should be plenty of time to get a copy of the NA before any long deployments.

    Satellites are wonderful things.  I have exchanged email via commercial sats (Inmarsat & Iridium) and even amateur HF radio (there are commercial HF systems as well.)  I am quite sure the Navy has their own systems which i know nothing about.  It sure makes keeping in touch with home much easier.
