SENDING SIGNALS A nyone who has traveled to the Mexican Baja Peninsula knows that their U.S. based cell phone service may not work at all. Staying connected to family, friends, and especially businesses while pre- running or racing in Baja, is key for getting answers to important decisions and letting others know the condition of loved ones. Satellite phone services are the most reliable way to stay in touch cross country, and new technologies provide a variety of affordable and high-end services that many desert racing teams and fans can take advantage of. While there are many satellite services available, SCORE International recently teamed up with the Satellite Phone Store, to provide discounted services to teams and their families. "New technologies from satellite phone networks like Iridium, provide SCORE teams and fans a greater diversity of service than simply making a single phone call," said Eric Talman, Satellite Phone Store sales manager. "Satellite phones work the best in providing a high- quality, reliable connection to anyone in the same location, or in a completely different country across the globe." NEW SATELLITE PHONE TECHNOLOGY CAN IMPROVE COMMUNICATION IN BAJA SATELLITE PHONES LIKE THIS IRIDIUM EXTREME PROVIDE NEW SERVICES LIKE PUSH-TO-TALK, WHICH CAN BE VERY BENEFICIAL TO SCORE TEAMS.
