George mobile coverage in the Kimberly is non existent. You will only get a service in the towns i.e Broome, Derby etc. and these are a long way apart,

George , that is why I have had a Sat phone for the last10 years as I worked up in that area and there is basicly no coverage to speak of.
The HF will give you weather and may be a few cruisers in the area, but the Sat even though it is only one on one will give you coverage to all and sundry.
