The Iridium 9555 has been tried and tested for several years. It is used by emergency services, military, commercial operators as well as individuals for their own domestic use when away from a mobile network across Australia.
The Iridium network has 66 satellites in its global network and generally speaking is not directional in use when compared to some of the other networks. The Iridium 9555 is supplied with a small magnetic base antenna which when placed on the roof of a car will assist reception. A vehicle will shield a satellite phone from the satellites if no external antenna is fitted. As with a normal mobile you may experience drop outs as you drive through a cellular network, so to you may experience a drop out as the network rotates around the earth and you are handed from one satellite to another.
If the availability of receiving calls is a priority for you then we usually recommend the Iridium network or installing an in-vehicle kit with external antenna if using the Inmarsat phone and network.
If a satellite phone is going to be a part of your daily communication then we also suggest having a look at the Iridium 9575 Extreme top of the range phone.
