We use the Iridium network which has complete global coverage with 66 Low-earth orbiting active satellites.
- These satellites orbit at an altitude of 485 miles, circling the earth once every 100 minutes.
**Although Iridium has complete global coverage, there are restrictions in some countries that prohibit the use of satellite communication devices. Some of these countries include China, Cuba, India, Iran, North Korea, Syria, and Sudan. Each country is different and regulations may change. It is the responsibility of the user/owner of the bivy stick to know these regulations and to check with the local Consulate or Customs offices.
