      I am in for 20-50.  I called Verizon,  you can put the service on hold for up to 3 months twice a year. 
      Some companies offer internet signal boosters.  If sprint was the best choice but not quite enough reception they may give us a free booster? 
      Satellite internet is another option.
      If possible (cost, data usage and reliability ) I would like to propose a camera like the slingshot kite cam in hood river.  You can control the camera for a minute or two at a time from your computer (pan left, right, up, down and  very impressive zoom).

      I'm in for $20-50, and do have a wireless hotspot I don't use, but it is Verizon.

      I like the way you're thinking… Lets explore all the options so we can see what will work best long term.

      Might be cost prohibitive.  2-300 cracked screen, otherwise 400+ for non broken units.  

      Not sure if the hotspot will stay activated when only used periodically.  I can donate mine for a week or so to test.   On May 4, 2013, at 18:13, RUSTY HILL <rustyshill@...> wrote:
      that could work… how much for an broken iPad?

      What about maybe a cheap cracked screen iPad with Verizon off eBay?  Non contract data $20/month for 1GB.   On May 4, 2013, at 17:37, RUSTY HILL <rustyshill@...> wrote:
      As of right now, Verizion wouldn't be the best bet as they require a contract and are much more expensive. That would require us to pay for service on months we have no need for the weather station. That's why we're trying to find someone who has a Sprint smartphone so we could sign up for a month to month service through Virgin, who uses Sprint's network.

      Count me in for a contribution in funds. I've got an iPad with the Verizon 4G chip in it, I can run Speedtest.net on Verizon up there if you want. Let me know and I'll bring it next time.
