Searched the archives and could not find much in last couple of years. I know Globalstar used to have rubbish coverage up here (AK and for me Kodiak). But I heard rumours of new satellites covering AK and a new station thingy in Wasilla. Also Globalstar supports SPOT and they seem to have good reviews. So is Iridium still they only choice or is Globalstar now a competitor in AK?
part of the reason I ask is that Globalstar phones can be picked up far cheaper than Iridium.
