        Talked about them the other day for the exact reason. A friend of a friend has a wife that freaks out if she canít contact him when heís offshore. Says itís worth every penny. I think the basic plan is only 10 texts or so but that keeps conversations to a minimum. Also, I believe there are prewritten messages that can be used to communicate things like just arrived or on our way back. I may look into one for my backcountry trip.

          Same as what Kbetts wrote above. I know sat phones are hit and miss at times on connections and about $100 a month.
