Ok, so after doing some searching on older posts, the general consensus is that globalstar sat coverage up here sucks.

This post is mainly a question if anyone has used the GS network since they launched more of there satallites and/or used their "best time of day to call" calculator?

I realize that the better of the two networks is obviously iridium, however I am looking for some first hand insight to recent (last 6-months) use of the Globalstar sat phone network.

Thank you in advance for not posting the generic non-specific answers such as "GS sucks, just buy iridium"
