Some thoughts on satellite phones.

There are still an astonishing number of areas without cell phone service. What matters most right now are areas between two towns that will not support a cell tower, be it for lack of commercial power, inhospitable terrain, and so on…. So, what do you do when you travel through those places and you need, at least, the capability to make an emergency phone call? Satellite? Not so fast. Let’s hope you’re not in Redwood National Forrest. Let’s also hope you are calling at the suggested time of day. What does that leave the casual traveler? More sophisticated satellite phones, really, professional grade stuff. Expensive. I’ll call you when I have a reasonable solution.
