Satellite Phone Rental
Will be Caribou hunting next month in August and have been advised to rent a satellite phone for emergencies. Anyone have any suggestions (I've googled and looked at the standard ads on it)? Searching the local yellow pages by internet are no help. Thanks
Yup! I remember sitting there with no cell service, looking at the OnX phone map (no service needed) and having to tell my guys, we have to stop walking soon...we're about to go into Wyoming. :tooth:
I have one of these. I got the tracker free due to a special offer, although I had to jump through hoops and wait for several months to get my rebate. I also had to buy a $200/year subscription service. The SPOT tracker allows you to record 3 messages that you can send to predetermined phone numbers and email address, as well as an emergency message you can send in case of a real emergency. It will provided the GPS coordinates for every message you send, but it does not allow you to change the messages once you are unable to log in to your SPOT account. It's mostly for letting loved ones know that all is well, or whatever else you think they need to know.
I've only used mine once, but it seems to work well. It's not as nice as a satellite phone, but a cheaper option.
Good luck. I'm looking forward to pictures and a story. :up:
Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.
