      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Globalstar Qualcomm GSP-1600 Satelite Phone $250

 

These normally retail for $600-700

 

GSP-1600 sat phone at amazon.com

 

I read somewhere that Emergency 911 calls are possible without paying for service. Not sure if that is true.

 

Service only costs $35/mo though.

 

This could be a great piece of gear for your next expedition to some remote place.

Globalstar service isn't worth SHIT at the moment, so, no, not a great piece of gear. This might chance later in the year when they replace some satellites, but who knows.

SteepAndCheap has the Camp Alpina axe up right now at 66.99, which is 55% off. Looks like a decent little alpine mountaineering axe.
