A quick word about Satellite phones.
- Satellite phones are an excellent communication tool when out of normal GSM range.
- They transmit to satellites that are either orbiting Earth at 26,000kph at a height of 700km or they are over 35,000km away.
- If they cannot clearly see the satellite they don’t work very well; and they do not work inside a house or buildings.
- The call quality is at times ‘not great’ but you can converse. Don’t expect to have a service similar to your GSM mobile.
