Greetings and a blessed week to you.
Hope for Survival is 30 days in to our new affiliation with the Satellite Phone Store and things are going great. I want to thank all the Patriots who leaned forward to add the satellite phone to their Family Communication Plan. The personal relief it provides to a family while traveling through non-cell serviced areas is priceless but I will discuss that below. You don't want to miss out on this great opportunity. They are a five star rated company with great reviews. If you are a Patriot, I am sure you have noticed advertisements for this product on other alternative sites. This is an excellent plan. After much research, several HFS Patriots opted for the satellite plan and package that I reference below for our personal preparedness package. However, you can pick from many phones, services and packages. This ensures we can maintain communications during natural and manmade disasters.
There are countless stories of occurrences turning to disasters and even loss of life for a loved one. From natural and manmade disasters to even simple hiking excursions where a person gets turned around and then loss in no service areas for cell phones. Imagine your loved one being the person lost out on the trail and they can not reach your for help and being found. Here is a sad story of one such lady a few years ago. LADY LOST ON APPLALACHIAN TRAIL FOUND DEAD AFTER GETTING LOST - Bing I was recently in northern West Virginia with family and part of our day was spent on gravel roads with no cell phone service or GPS. Guess what? I was not worried because I had my personal Satellite phone in my get home bag with food and water in the event of an emergency and cell service wasn't available. The comfort it provided to me and my family was excellent. We could relax and enjoy our site seeing trip.
Adding an affordable satellite phone to your communication plans is a huge boost in capabilities. This is a great multiplier if you are on the move, or to use during a natural disaster, or if you are out hiking with family and someone gets injured and you need urgent care. Many locations are simply off grid and having a cellular phone signal is never a guarantee. Having a satellite phone almost always assures you have contact with the outside world on any occasion.
Most of the HFS Patriots went with the Inmarsat Phone 2 pictured below. Notice with the plan, third from the left vs the others, that the phone is free. You pay the first month and last month of the 12 month plan up front which is around $230.00 and then you won't pay another bill for two months. You can select this plan but pay additional to get more minutes. Podcast Promo Inmarsat IsatPhone 2 Satellite Phone (satellitephonestore.com)
The satellite phone comes with a US based phone number and you can call non-satellite cellular phone numbers. This package comes with a faraday bag, applicable chargers, phone holder for the belt just like a cell phone, and USB cables for charging.
As I stated above, myself and several HFS Patriots now own this satellite phone package and during almost any type of disaster, HFS members can communicate from location to location, state to state, as desired. By using the HFS Sat Phone link at the top of the HFS main page and blog page, you will be capable of receiving HFS Emergency Alert Text notifications like offered by other affiliate names sponsoring this program.
This is a great price, not because HFS is now an affiliate, but because HFS has been pricing Satellite Phones and packages for about ten years now, but we never went forward to procure a phone or sign a contract because of the extreme pricing. Previously a phone alone was close to $1,000 and a monthly plan for minutes was a price per minute with a minimal amount to start. We resisted this resource until this summer. We believe this is the most reliable communication device to add to your preparedness package.
If you are considering purchasing a satellite phone, HFS would appreciate you using the link provided which will identify you as a follower of Hope for Survival. .
