Thanks, Matt. Anyone have any experience with Signal Voice and Data (

They seem like a good local company, but I searched my Chugalug emails and
couldn't find any reference to them. Would love to hear if any of you guys
have good or bad experiences with them.

I've heard good things about Peace Communications from several people now,
but have found they are hard to track down (or at least aren't great at
returning emails). I called on Monday and was given an alternate email
address, but haven't heard back from 'em yet. I'll follow up via voice
later today or tomorrow.
