Cell Booster Makes Onboard Life More Productive

Shakespeare Cell Booster
Mar 21, 2016

Life today demands a 24/7 connection, but reception on the water is notoriously uneven. Dropped calls and marginal service are a thing of the past for users of Shakespeare®’s SuperHALO™ 5-Band Cellular Booster. The new 100+ Mbps device will increase cellular reception for 10+ users simultaneously.
 
A marine-grade onboard voice and data solution, SuperHALO is compatible with all US and Canada 2G, 3G and 4G networks. It doesn’t need to be connected by a licensed installer. This keeps it within the reach of those who need a simple and cost-effective way to access high speed Internet on multiple devices.
 
Running on 12V DC, the energy efficient device draws a meager 2.1 amps. It features stealth technology—the uplink becomes dormant when not in use to save on power—and has automatic shutdown.
 
SuperHALO has automatic gain control and won’t overpower or interfere with cell sites. It’s also manually adjustable, providing flexibility in placement and fine-tuning of the antennas. This booster is RoHS compliant, FCC certified and carrier approved.
 
Compact, it’s only 7-7/8″ L x 5″ W x 1-3/16″ D and weighs a mere 2 lbs. 3 oz., even with its durable metal construction. The external antenna’s standard 1-1/4″ thread makes it compatible with a broad range of Shakespeare mounting options. Each SuperHALO kit contains one external and two internal antennas—only one internal antenna is needed— a cell booster and two lengths of coax. Longer cables and signal splitters for additional indoor wireless applications are available.
 
Shakespeare’s SuperHALO 5-Band Cellular Booster comes with a three-year warranty.

New Boats: Beneteau Oceanis 34.1 – A Sleek, Good -Looking Delight To Sail

By Katherine Stone

There is nothing more that I enjoy than being with friends and messing about in boats. Messing about in brand-new boats on a champagne sailing day on Lake Ontario at the beginning of the summer doesn’t get any better. To have the new owner, Helmuth Strobel and Anchor Yachts dealer Pancho Jimenez aboard made it even more special, as they can also speak to what they truly enjoy about the boat. We keep our own boat in a harbour that has a long waiting list for boats over 35 feet, so this little gem would definitely fit the bill and feels like a much bigger boat. True to the spirit of the 7th generation Oceanis line, the 34.1 is built in Poland and replaces the 35.1. It is 1,000 lbs lighter, 14 cm narrower and has 29% more sail area.

Telegraph Cove—from Resource Community to Tourist Delight

Text and photos by Marianne Scott

Telegraph Cove is a small indent situated on Johnstone Strait in the Salish Sea, 15nm southeast of Port McNeill and near Robson Bight, famous for its orca-rubbing beaches. The village has experienced many iterations with a long history—the harbour once served as a summer camp for the Kwakwaka’wakw who fished and hunted here beginning about 8,000 years ago. Many of their descendants still live in the area.

It’s a hopping place in the summer—winter only caretakers remain on site.
