Call up wireless companies to see if they will sponsor you.

Thank you for your idea, but most wireless companies are cellular and after leaving land there is no reception for the towers, satellite units are the only way to go, and I am insurch of a company that manufactures ultra-lite units.

Thank you

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satellite_phone lists a few companies that might be able to provide an internet link through the satellite phone. Maybe a call to the Coast Guard or weather station/observatory can provide you with some info on what they do.  Might be an expensive proposition though.  Good luck.
