Satellite Communication and Beacons

Modern technology enables us to call on satellites to inform loved ones that all is well, provide tracking information during a remote trip, or call for help. Choose your device based on your needs.  Do you need GPS navigation as well?

Look into any subscription or use fees.

Practice using the device. How will those people or authorities you notify come to your help? What information do you need to provide them?

What power sources do you need to keep using for the duration of activity and some extra reserve?  Spare batteries?  Powerpacks?
