I have been working on a totally new article to help summarize the current situation with using sat phones in Australia (from an outback traveller's perspective). I have put together a great article that I'm sure will be of great help to people but I just need someone to critique it (=check for technical errors) before I publish it.
Please contact me directly via email michelle (at) itbeyond (dot) com (dot) au
Thanks!
Michelle

Michelle, can't help with the technical know-how, but a question for you. Have you included by chance all of the different calling sequences needed by the different brands to call:
Sat phone to sat phone
Sat phone to mobile
Sat phone to land line?

Both within Australia and International.

Reason for asking is that each brand seems to have a different protocol from what I've seen.

Have you also included a warning that call costs for someone wanting to phone a particular sat phone from a mobile or landline can be expensive....... some of these call costs can be up to $22 per minute.

Thanks everyone for your consideration. I have found a volunteer and we are in contact now, so I think I should be right.

Look forward to it.

Will it include a run-down of duplex sat text communicators? The new kid on the block and perhaps worth another article.
