"Phones, Fires and Failures" A Presentation on California Disaster Preparedness. Presentation Schedule Here.

I specialize in providing Hughesnet and VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) two-way Satellite Internet and telephone communications systems installation service and consulting to homes and businesses in California, Nevada, Mexico, and Central America. I speak basic Spanish, and install and service satellite communications systems outside the reach of conventional Internet and telephone service. I'm a certified installer and technician, and I specialize in HughesNet, iDirect®, and UHP V-Sat fixed and mobile systems.

Most satellite internet communications projects are in remote locations far beyond the reach of conventional, land-based Internet or cellular telephone coverage. Industries we service include Mining and Minerals Exploration, Oil and Gas Exploration and Drilling, Emergency Response and Disaster Recovery, Forestry and Fire-fighting Camps, Dam and Road Construction, and anywhere where access to remote communications is a must.
