Thread: Fairbanks-Satellite Phone

    Default Fairbanks-Satellite Phone

    Does anyone know of a good place to rent satellite phones here in Fairbanks? I did try to look online but nothing came up, only Anchorage rental places and news about iridium.

    Will need one for August sheep hunt and Moose/bear hunt in Sept.

    Thanks for any information.

    keep in mind you can get good deals on used ones on line as well.. buddy bought two on Ebay for 400.00 total... when to radio FBKS and turned them on... service is 6 months for 200.00 with 200 min... if you renew that before the contract expires.. you keep same number and unused minutes roll over.. to the next period. i don't use min much n the winter so i usually have about 380-600 minutes during hunting season. but make sure it s the IRIDIUM. not the global star... they are out there a lot of guys have purchased them and then never used them again... most are in really good shape. you can get a used one with 30 day warranty from both shops as well...600-900 for the kit... i bought mine new in 07 1700 total with the service. phone with, leather soft cover, and pelican case, 2 batteries, mag, car top antenna, 12v, and 120 volt charger and head set... it has worked in every condition i have been in.
