With the launch of the affordable IsatPhone Pro in Australia this year, satellite communications has become a viable option for travellers.

Increased use has opened up discussions regarding the use of satellite phones in emergency situations.

Satellite phones are perfect emergency communications tools for a number of reasons:

  • Satellites are not affected by natural disasters
  • Satellite phones are robust and 'adventure proof'
  • They are not dependent on GSM coverage
  • They work anywhere in the world, even at sea
Also, with an IsatPhone Pro it is possible to send GPS location data to anyone at the push of a button. This equates to peace of mind for anyone travelling in remote areas. Unlike an EPIRB emergency beacon, IsatPhones may be used as full communications tools and do not have to be in a severe accident or emergency to send location data. 

TC Communications recommends the pre-programming of emergency contacts in satellite phones so that they can contact the relevant emergency service agency when needed.

TC has also compiled a list of numbers that will be very useful for anyone setting off an adventure off the beaten track. This list is available at the allsatphones website.
