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).
