The Taku River in Southeast Alaska with headwaters in British Columbia is navigable for most of its 140 miles to saltwater. For years the homesites accessible only by boat or plane on the American side had no communication at all. Seaport Tel has taken care of us through the Starband days, and suffered with us through the Hughes 7000s. To date there are 17 Gen 5 systems supported by Seaport Tel, with Joe Ashcraft himself making sure SBC files and other winter problems are fixed for our summer and fall season. His expertise and care have been critical for the 3 year-round residents, and much welcomed by those who can now stay longer, do business, and be up here the necessary time to maintain the properties. As a realtor I have run into Joe in varied remote locations, serving my customers and his. Always, he shows and receives respect from home and business owners alike.
