Hey all,
Looking to rent a SAT phone from Wed Aug 8 - Mon Aug 20th for a trip on the Missinaibi. I've tried the local provider - Spectrum Group - but they don't have any available. Just thought I'd post here in case someone knows of another provider or someone living in the Sudbury area might have one that they would be willing to rent.
pm me...
Cheers,
Al 8)

Compare the rental cost to the purchase/service of an inReach. Unless you feel
you really need the "talk" function (I've found the Inreach sufficient so far)

Going away the same week to Biscotasing/Spanish area and we are renting from RoadPost https://www.roadpost.ca/ They're in Toronto somewhere, but they ship and pick up the phone, price is affordable for the basic emergency service, and pay as you go for calls and texts, but when you split it up between the group, it's really nothing for the "what if" situation arises. This is the second year renting from them and had good experience dealing with them. Good luck on your trip!
