Comment: Handheld Satellite Phone Solutions for Travellers

We go fishing a few times a year up north and we all have fitted in car Westinghouse or NEC S2 fixed units with mast or dome antennas , they are a bit big but u can get them on eBay for around $500 or less , we only get them turned on for the trips at a cost of $45 a month . With the big antennas reception is never a problem wile driving or in camp so that may be another option .

One big problem. The Optus B3 Satellite that provides the Mobilesat service that these use is about to be turned off and the phone will be a $500 brick.

You could get a ( relatively small) Iridium for $500 ish on ebay and put your Telstra Sim in it for $0 per month.
