Some time ago I posted a thread highlighting that the Sat Phone Subsidy was ending on 30th June 2013. I see it has been extended till June 2014 which may be of interest to some travellers.

Thanks Tony. Yes I got a bit of a shock myself at the recent 4x4 show to find they were still handing out the application forms. It can only be a good thing for keen outback travellers. I've used it twice over the past 10 years and it's been a great boon in reducing the initial cost of Satphone purchase.

Hopefully it won't be identified as a cost saving too soon ;-)

Cheers Mick
