Satellite phones

Can anyone help? I was reading a forum on Sat phones last year and the name of a company came up which sells re-furbished second hand phones.I have lost that name and would like to contact them again.

Wasn't Skycomm in Bisbane was it? (07) 3252-1115

I know they repair the Motorolla Iridium's.

What about a new Thuraya 2510 / 2520 Satphone. Ron Monn did an infomercial for them in4X4 mag last month and said it worked well.

The Thuraya only connects to a single satellite over Singapore.

Great if you're in the desert in WA - a total waste of money if you're in a valley in South East Australia - and that's based on actual testing.

But Mike, 4X4 mag, Ron Moon said it worked great all the way across from Esperance ( WA ) to Eden (NSW) over a four week period - " I had no trouble with the phone picking up the satellite and getting full signal strength everytime he used it"

Ron says it's "one hell of a good deal "

Are you casting nasturtions on Ron's integrity ?

I've only tested it in mountainous country in NSW.

My experience doesn't match his experience.

You would be quite accurate if you said "my Globalsat works anywhere in Australia".

There is a couple available in the Trader, Iridiums.
One is mine and is almost brand new still with original packaging/box.
