A peace of mind for Emergency Services in remote communities

Australia is widely known for its vast land and approximately 85% of the country’s landmass is considered remote area.  Communication has a significant impact on the population living in these remote areas especially when Emergency Services is essential to these communities and disaster occurs.

Michael Selfe lives in a remote community in far north Queensland and works in emergency services where reliable communication is crucial, not only in his profession but also to his day to day living.  It is very important to stay connected, as natural disasters and medical emergencies occur occasionally in remote places, which could send him traveling long distances being the nearest emergency assistance.

Be in touch at all times
“Working in emergency services, I require a phone that is reliable and easy to use, it is not uncommon for me to travel 4-5 hours one way before turning back home.  It is imperative that I always have a phone connection also during times when I’m required to be away from family, it’s nice to remain in contact.  Whether I use it for work, recreational, or personal, it’s there for the peace of mind.”

“I had an older Satellite Phone model which kept dropping out and voice clarity was poor, so an upgrade was necessary.  I contacted SatPhone Shop and was recommended the Beam DriveDOCK Extreme bundle,” says Michael.

The bundle is a complete package that includes the DriveDOCK docking station, Iridium 9575 Extreme Handset, Dual Mode WHIP Antenna and speaker and microphone.
“I installed the unit in my vehicle and have used the Extreme handset several times.  It (Iridium 9575 Extreme) works better than I expected and out here, you want to make sure that calls don’t drop out that often, the usability, ease of functionality and ruggedness is exactly what I was looking for.”

SatPhone Shop is your one-stop-shop for satellite equipment that offers a range of satellite mobile phone products and solutions to meet your requirements.

“The service I got from SatPhone Shop was exceptional,”  says Michael.  “The attention I received for understanding my needs and requirements to ensure that I was getting the right equipment, was remarkable.  I’m very happy with the equipment I purchased and I highly recommend SatPhone Shop for their outstanding service.”
