Satellite phones?
Author Last Post

I hooked mine up with an internal antenna inside the airplane with a headset hookup and I can call over satellite right within the airplane itself!

I fly with my GSP-1700 any time I fly remote.
i have had this phone for probably 3 years now.
it is always packed in a shock proof and water proof carrying case.
Great piece of mind

Since Sparky went down I have been rethinking my survival gear. One of the items tha I am thinking about carrying is a satellite phone. A lot of my flying is into strips in SE Utah that are fairly remote. Cell phone reception is marginal at best. I usually fly alone so if I have a problem, it is MY problem. Looking on ebay, they have new Globalstar phones for around $400. I see others that are upwards of $2000.00. I wonder if you get what you pay for, or if the more expensive ones have features that you pay for but may not really need. Anyone have any experience or thoughts about these? Is the Globalstar a good phone? Thanks Gary
