My husband is a long-distance solo sailor who relies on me to purchase pre-paid vouchers for his Immarsat satellite phone. Neither of us are good at technology and the team at Sat Phone Sales have been a 'Godsend' to us in this respect. They guide me through the process of buying the pre-paid vouchers and then help to put the credit onto the phone when I call to let them know it is running low. They are unfailingly helpful and courteous and extremely patient. I cannot recommend their products or after sales service too highly. It is wonderful to find such efficient and understanding human beings on the other end of the telephone. Thanks again Sat Phone Sales team. Sincerely Kathleen Webb.
I bought one of these from Kev and the team in the middle of 2014. I was riding adventure motor bikes in and around some hard to get to places and often without telephone contact. As it turned out I also picked up a job in the Central Australia Desert and fly in and out of there for one week a month. There are very few communication options for me once off the beaten track. I take the SPOT 3 with me at all times and when I've arrived at my destnation for the day I hit the 'I'm OK' button which tells the wife that I'm safe and well. She loves to know that and for the other options and the safety net it provides it give me great confidence out there. A couple of mates also check my tracking and keep an eye on what I'm doing in case of a problem. Great stuff.
