Has anyone had experience with a satellite phone like the one advertized on Snowtrax? Some of us at work were wondering about leasing one for the winter. Especially when heading up north.

I know around Apsley once you get a few miles away from Hwy. 28 where there is service, you may as well be talking to your shoe

Just a side note Golobal Star 's service ends at 72 degrees north Latitude. (Just in case your were planning a long trip north)

What kind of sat. phone is on the snowtrax cover? I've use a sat. phone last summer a couple of times and it works just like a cell phone but it sounds a bit more distorded, kinda like a 1970-80 phone. The only bad thing is that if you use a sat phone, there is a good bet that you're out of the pizza delivery zone
