Satellite phone hire in Hobart - where?

Postby myrtlegirl » Wed 13 Mar, 2024 8:58 am

Hey walking brains trust,

has anyone hired a sat phone in Hobart recently, and/or could recommend a place? I have googled, but that then involves ringing each one to learn that they don't have them in Hobart, and we've left our run too late to wait for one to be sent.

Thanks team!

I am not aware of anywhere that hires satphones in Hobart. You can hire a PLB from Service Tasmania if that helps.
