Satellite Phone

Hey guys,

I'm headed across the Atlantic May 17th from New York. (NY->Azores->England) With a full crew on a 46' custom built Ketch, to get some open Ocean sailing experience before I try it out myself on our planned trip down south in the Bayfield in September

Can one of you guys fill me in on the whole Satellite Phone deal? I'm considering bringing one along. The skipper does not have one. It would be nice to be in contact with land and keep my worried girlfriend updated on the state of my longevity (no pun intended)

Get it ? Longevity? Longitutde? ahahahaahaha.

No seriously, please tell me about satellite phones, I am looking at a few online and so far I see most services will rent you phones for about $15 a week average.

How does it work? Has anyone used them?
