SATCOM for Mountain and Nautical Living

I was Reading the Packet Radio thread. My Tribe has two locations, one is Gulf of Mexico Beach, other is Rocky mountains. In either location, cell coms go black and you are on your own. The beach as soon as you go below the dunes and get dug in or on a kayak, you can not text. In the mountains, you go in a valley or canyon cell goes black. Towers are near the city hives and after you get out in the bush crickets.

So HAM radio is an option, learning it, but it is gear and antenna intense. I was wondering how others do COMS in remote locations? We were looking at the X2 units at a backpacker store and am wondering if anyone has used these or other similar methods and could clue us in?

Thanks for any info.

Please send an email to Publisher *at* FreedomsPhoenix dot com so we can schedule a radio show on the subject (we can use Skype or...). This is a good issue that needs more discussion about what is needed and the available solutions.
