What is the cost per minute for a satellite phone? I think that will dissuade you...and I think they are heavy. Mini Mart

Subject: [Cdt-l] Satellite Radio for a Thru-Hike
planning another thru-hike, this time the CDT. Does anyone have any
updated information on the use of satellite radios on a thru-hike?
Obviously, my concerns would be durabilty, signal strength, and battery
life. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I hiked with an
am/fm portable radio on the PCT and enjoyed it very much for sports
and those mindless days where a little music goes a long way! From the
little research I've done for the portable satellite radio it seems as
though a thru-hike wouldn't be the best application for them, but I just
don't know. Again, any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.
