Can you send me an Iridium Extreme location message?

I've been working on a boat tracking system ( to make it possible to track boats anywhere in the world without buying extra hardware or a subscription service.

Currently positions are posted by SMS/text or by a simple web page that can be saved offline and submitted when connected to a extremely low speed Internet connection (SSB or satellite).

I've read about the new location messenging service available on the Iridium Extreme and would like to make it possible for people to send a location messages and have them posted automatically.

Is anyone out there willing to send me a location message from an Iridium Extreme? If you, could you please send it to +16122940650 and then let me know after you have sent it?

Thank you for considering.
