Top Activities in the United States to Do Where You’ll Need a Satellite Phone: Trekking Through Dense Woods

Top Activities in the United States to Do Where You’ll Need a Satellite Phone: Trekking Through Dense Woods

Many people have a misconception about satellite phones. That’s because in the beginning of satellite phone use and technology, satellite phone service was outrageously expensive. Hence, the thought that only well-to-do people could afford satellite phones was ingrained in our mindset (remember that it wasn’t that long ago that flat screen TVs has this same notion, and now virtually everyone owns a flat screen TV, and you would be hard pressed to find someone with an older style TV). You can also blame pop culture and the movies, which only showed jet setters, spies, or international governments or agents using satellite phones (movies have a very powerful effect on our psyche — more than most of us would admit).


Fast forward over two decades later, and satellite phones are not only affordable, but they are essential for some professions (firefighters, rescue workers, military, police, and off-shore oil workers) and a must-have item (at least a rental satellite phone) for those interested in high adventures or off-the-grid living).


Outfitters Satellite Phones has been on the cutting-edge of the satellite phone field for almost 25 years. We have dedicated our lives to helping those who help others (such as those in war zones, or on mission trips) and helping those who are helping themselves (by exploring this vast and amazing world around us) by offering satellite phone service and satellite mobile broadband internet services. In this continuing series in our look at where you’ll need a satellite phone for adventuring in the United States, we’ll take a look at trekking through dense woods.

Top Activities in the United States to Do Where You’ll Need a Satellite Phone: Climbing 14’ers

Most of us spend our days surrounded by machines, whether you have a desk job and spend all day staring at your computer, or you work in the field and run heavy equipment. It’s a fact of life that one truly cannot escape modern machines and technology unless you do choose to live off the grid. Let’s be honest, most of us don’t want to give up our modern conveniences, from turning on the faucet every day and being greeted by warm water to jumping in the car and visiting your grandmother who lives 15 miles away.


That being said, most of us still want to escape every now and then and get back to nature. We all have our favorite ways to do so, from camping to hiking and mountain biking. Some like to really escape and go where few others go (including where few cell phone towers go) and climb 14’ers. If you are thinking about taking on a mountain that hovers over 14,000 feet above sea level, then you will need a satellite phone or a rental satellite phone by Outfitter Satellite Phones, a satellite phone store.

Top Activities in the United States to Do Where You’ll Need a Satellite Phone: Hunting

Many people have heard of satellite phones, but really have no idea when you would need one or why. This is because many people are mistakenly under the impression that cell phones work everywhere, which, as anyone who has travelled knows, is just not true. In fact, there are vast tracks, even in the United States, that do not have cell phone coverage. This is because in order to have cell phone coverage, you need to have cell phone towers, which relays the signal from your cell provider to your phone. Hence, where there is no cell phone towers, or they are few and far between, your cell phone coverage and connection can be compromised, anywhere from non-existent to spotty at best.

Technology is truly amazing. When you think back to when you were a kid and all of the things that have been invented in the last 10 years, you wonder how you ever lived your life without them. Instead of BC (before children), you now can segregate your live into BCP (before cell phones).

Another satellite phone offering is our Thuraya satellite phones that work well in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and Australia.

Mobile Broadband Internet, Satellite SIM Cards, and Unexplored Places On Earth

Mobile Broadband Internet, Satellite SIM Cards, and Unexplored Places On Earth

Humans have been on this planet for a very long time. Since we’ve been living on Earth for so long, and human curiosity drives the desire to explore and learn, you’d think that most of the planet would have been traveled and explored. But that’s simply not the case. 


Compared to any other known planet in the universe, the Earth is hardly an alien planet. Still, there exist many parts of the Earth’s surface (and what lies beneath) that no one has seen, much less understood. Take the ocean floor, for example. Marine scientists agree that less than 5% of the ocean floor has been mapped and explored. Less than 5%! And when you consider that the ocean makes up roughly 70% of the planet’s total surface area, that’s a very large amount of unexplored and unseen space. 


What Do Our Mobile Broadband Internet Providers Have To Do With This? 


In a direct sense? Nothing. But in a related sense, Outfitter Satellite helps researchers, remote workers, explorers, and other people who travel far away from society by helping them stay connected. We’re the foremost carrier of satellite phone SIM cards, satellite phones for rent, mobile broadband internet terminals, and other satellite-based communications solutions that help keep people safe and connected.
