Satellite Phones ???


I work for a medium sized school district in Colorado. I have been tasked with sourcing the "best on the market" Satellite Phones to have in the case of extreme disasters. I would like to get some credible information about Satellite Phones and what would be considered "best on the market" products. I was thinking some fellow boaters and or back-country skiers may have some first hand knowledge and would be willing to share.

Thanks in advance, Lenny.

Sat phones

I have used both iridium and globelstar phones and can tell you that the iridiums are the better of the two. Globalstar has had satellite troubles over the years with the results being bad or no service at times. I think the 9575 is their top end phone and would be a good choice.
