Txt Message From Cell To Message Board

Thu Apr 06, 2006 12:35 am

Hey guys,
Is there a way to send text messages or 'email' a text message from my cellphone (LG 5200 I think) to a message board on the web? I am going on a plane trip as pilot in command accross the country and I want to send my Squawk codes to my friends so they can track me on a flight tracker.

God was my copilot, but we crashed in the mountains and I had to eat him...

I would have thought you will be told to turn your phone off.....!

I know you're going as PIC, but it would be easier for them to listen out on the airband radio for you rather than piss around sending texts every time you change your squawk/freq.

I'll add that if you're going IFR, you really shouldn't have your phone on anyway. I've seen the effects of mobile phones on instruments while in IMC, it aint funny.

And if you're going VFR, you'll most likely being squawking 7000 a lot of the way anyway!!!
