Satellite Phone
 
Anyone want to rent a satellite phone? We could rent just one for our entire group. I'd like to use it a few times to call my wife and let her know that I'm OK. This has prevented her from excessive worry when I'm on the trail.

Chris, where have we rented sat phones for CM?

Chris, what phones did we rent this year, and what did we rent in previous years? I know there were complaints about this year's phones, where the previous years were solid.

That's not a bad idea, my first reaction was we don't need one since NORCAL will have one, plus we have the Hams for emergencies, but when you mention we could just use it to call home then ok I'm in. What's the cost? Should we all chip in? Does RS want to buy it? :)

Purchase would be over $1K. I'd be happy to chip in a little for rental.
