For hunters, fishers, and anyone else who spends time outdoors in remote places, a satellite phone is an important safety tool. While most trips go smoothly and as planned, any hunter or fisher will tell you, it’s essential that you always prepare for the unexpected. A satellite phone will provide you with peace of mind knowing that if anything goes wrong, you have a way to reach out to emergency services. Additionally, if you plan to spend an extended amount of time on a hunting or fishing trip, you can use your satellite phone to check in with friends and family so they know you’re safe.
Satellite Phones Provide Global Communication & Built-In GPS
It’s common in the wilderness to lose cell reception. A satellite phone will provide you with reliable communication as long as you have a view of the sky. Iridium® satellite phones in particular can provide you with global communication, so no matter where you plan your next hunting or fishing trip, you can rest assured you’ll have reliable communication when you need it.
Satellite phones also come equipped with built-in GPS. Many satellite phones will allow you to set your phone to report a breadcrumb trail of your GPS position to a predetermined number of a friend or family member. Some satellite phones also come with an SOS button that allows you to send your GPS location at the touch of a button in case of emergency.
Satellite Phones Are Made to Withstand the Elements
Another reason that satellite phones are an essential accessory for hunters and fishers is because unlike most cell phones, satellite phones are made to withstand a trek through the backcountry no matter the weather conditions. Satellite phones, such as the Iridium Extreme® come with an Ingress rating of IP65 against water and dust intrusion. They are also built from rugged, strong materials. Additionally, when you purchase your Iridium Extreme from Outfitter Satellite, it comes with a weather resistant case to help further protect your satellite phone.
Satellite Phones Are Essential in Case of Unexpected Inclement Weather or Injury
Spending time outdoors is a great way to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. However, it’s essential that you always prepare for the worst. In the event of unexpected inclement weather or in case you sustain an injury, you need to have a way to reach emergency services. Satellite phones provide you with reliable communication almost anywhere in the backwoods, so you can easily call a friend, family member, or 911 if necessary.
Satellite Phones Allow You to Communication With Family & Friends
For those who spend a good deal of time in the wilderness, satellite phones aren’t just for emergency situations. They can also provide you with an easy way to reach out to a friend or family member to let them know that you’re safe. Whether you choose to send a quick text or make a phone call, your loved ones will appreciate knowing that you’re okay.
