hello group,

is there any device or digital system that can be purchased to send  signal to a tower or satellite independently?

Is there any available device to do such thing?

Well, the generic answer is yes but the real answer depends on what you have and what you want.  Details are important.  ??

What do you mean by a tower and satellite?  If you're talking about a satellite in orbit, that requires a lot of power (but satellite phones can do it).

Thanks for your responses. Consider a digital equipment that needs to send a signal. Just an example, I'm using a micro-controller which using a sensor to calculate a phenomenon and now the results of this calculation is set of number and it is necessary to transmit the data to a receiver.  My question is that what kind of techniques are available to send that set of number of web server/application or any possible gateway to store them in a database.

If it's connected to a network, you can just perform some socket programming and write it directly to a remote server, or ftp it.  If it's not connected, you can store it in a file and schedule it to connect to a network or passively wait until it is connected, then transfer the files.  Local storage can be a flash drive.
