For ordering SCS Modems, please refer to the SCS price list above.  Send us an email with item number, quantity, delivery address, and method of payment below and we will respond with a firm quote and payment instructions.  SCS modems will have a nominal shipping  charge depending upon your location.  We do accept personal checks and cash.  Personal checks must clear our account prior to shipping.   On all shipments, we will provide you with the shippers tracking information number.  We can use PayPal (credit cards--3% surcharge for processing credit card, shipping address and billing address of the credit card MUST be the same) for US shipments only.   If your ordered equipment is shipped to me, I will pre check each component to assure that it is ready to be installed at your site.   Installation and checkout is faster is every component is check to be working properly.  Older Icom M802 had "clipping" issues and if you purchase used equipment, it is very important to make sure that the is working correctly.  Note that you will need some type of antenna for HF or SSB radios.  I will discuss your options on those items since your requirements will be unique for your application.  RVs, jungle adventurers, boaters have significantly different antenna requirements.  I do not install antennas but can recommend companies that can work with you.  Catamarans and single hull sailboats have very different applications with lots of options.
