SPOT Satellite Messenger
The SPOT Satellite Tracker. Bumped across this on eBay, but you can get it for $149 if you dig around, like here.

Good coverage in the areas where our troops are going. Doesn’t need an internet or cell phone tower connection. Service is $9.99/mo or $99 for the year. 911 mode, and has an “OK” button, to just let the folks back home know you’re OK. Extra service to link the user into Google Earth maps, with locations being transmitted every 10 minutes.

So what’s not to like about the “AA” battery powered, water proof, shock proof, 7.37 oz unit?

Oh, yeah…other services to tap you into international SAR resources…
