Quayle, an author and nationally known radio host, said the broadcast is a watershed moment they could share with the viewers. He noted that people normally panic when wars or calamities happen, and that the first thing they want to know is how to stay in contact with other people.
Blanco, a representative of the Satellite Phone Store, answered frequently asked questions and gave a walk-through about satellite phones, satellite bandwidth solutions and two-way text messaging using Bivy Sticks.
A satellite phone provides voice, SMS and data services anywhere on Earth without relying on cell phone networks. It works everywhere as long as you are outside.
Blanco said people who purchase their company's satellite phones automatically get a USA number along with an international number.
"We add a USA number so that it could bypass the international number. But it is important to have the satellite number because if anything happens with the USA number, at least the international numbers will still be working. So they do need to have both," Blanco said.
"And here's the difference. When you make a call from a satellite phone to any number, there is no additional fee for you and no additional fee for the person receiving the call."
Adams, the founder and editor of NaturalNews.com, asked Blanco about the concerns of some people on radiation and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) emanating from satellite phones. (Related: The Health Ranger talks about satphones and emergency satellite text messaging with Chris Hoar – Brighteon.TV.)
"Any radiation is only at the tip and it is going out. And it's completely above this call when you're talking on the phone. So you don't have to worry too much. Now, it's not guaranteed that there is 100 percent no radiation," explained Blanco, who used an Iridium satellite phone as an example.
"But it's not as bad as anything else. Like standing in the sun or standing in front of a microwave, there's really not too much. And it does have a speaker. So when I'm using these, I usually use the speaker. So you do have the option to use the speaker and keep the phone away from you."
Adams reminded people that a satellite phone should be pointed up at the sky, otherwise it won't get a connection.
Quayle also gave his comments about radiation by comparing the satellite phones with cell phones.
"Since it's at the tip of the antenna, most people don't understand how much radiation they get off their normal cell phone. This is way worse than the satellite phone antenna because the satellite phone antenna is directional versus omni directional. And so this acts as a homing beacon to whatever. But the bottom line is the satellite phone is safer for people who have that electromagnetic concern," said Quayle.
Adams pointed out that most people who are using a satellite phone use it either in an emergency situation or in a situation where they have no other alternative because there are no cell towers around. He added that oil rig workers and emergency responders responding to hurricanes and grid down situations are people who are going to use satellite phones for their main communication system.
Blanco also recommended the use of a high-speed internet device that can connect and find a satellite when going off road.
Quayle added that people are going to have an alternative way of sending communications through inter- or intranet network communications. He also mentioned that having a satellite phone can save your loved ones when facing dire or perilous situations. The radio host reminded the viewers to bring their satellite phones along with their Bivy Sticks when traveling because people can't take anything for granted these days.
Blanco agreed. She said that having a satellite phone allows people to communicate with their families, neighbors and friends during disasters.
