Is a US Number Actually Helpful?

If your satellite phone is kept in a docking station ready to receive a call, the optional US number could be useful. However, most satellite phone users keep their phones powered off to preserve battery strength, and this makes the US number of negligible benefit: incoming calls simply dump into voice mail which requires additional airtime usage to retrieve. Also, it is important to understand that the caller ID displayed will be your international Iridium mobile number not your US number. Fortunately, there is a better way! Tell your friends to send SMS messages to your satellite phone. This is free, and you will automatically receive the SMS message when you power the phone up again. Here are instructions.

Iridium 9555 Satellite Phones used in the Iditarod Sled Dog Race

In 2017, 2018, and again in 2019, Outfitter Satellite was the proud sponsor of the Iditarod Trail Committee. The Iridium 9555 satellite phones Outfitter Satellite provided allowed volunteers to monitor the checkpoints along the race through Alaska's vast and remote expanses. The satellite phones were a critical measure in assuring the safety of the race's human and canine participants.
