HOW DO U CONTACT HOME WHEN AT SEA

Most ships have e-mail facilities nowadays.

There is always the mail delivery/pick up by helicopter too.

...well it USED to be by SLT ...ship's letter telegram :mrgreen: ...occasionally you could get a ship/shore telphone link if you were lucky.
 
When you go operational you get the Operational Welfare package which includes Paradigm cards. These are 'phone cards' that get credited with 10/20 minutes worth of phone calls every sunday. You then queue up to get onto the specific phones around the ship that can 'phone out' via sat coms.

these phones are poor though as there is a 2 second delay when you say something, and if you speak at the sametime it cuts off!

Email is good, the MCO will send/recieve daily. It is soooo much easier now.

on my 1st deployment i did not call/write home for months - it is the reason you join up. a bit like the French foreign legion, but not as hard and you don't need to change your name. a bit more fun as well!!
