    Limited use but interesting use for a cell phone... GoTenna

    GoTenna links cell phones without a cell connection, giving them the ability to text, talk and share coordinates without cell service over 1-9 mile distances depending upon terrain. If you carry FRS radios on family outings along with your cell phones, this device allows you to save weight and do more over short distances.


    THE GOOD GoTenna works flawlessly to send messages between phones when you're without a cell signal. The rugged design holds up well to the elements.
    THE BAD Compared to many basic two-way radios, the price is steep. The rechargeable battery means you'll need a power source for longer excursions or emergency situations.
    THE BOTTOM LINE Like a modern walkie-talkie, GoTenna keeps your smartphone in touch with friends and family nearby even when there's no wireless coverage -- but everyone needs one of the gadgets, and it costs some serious scratch.
    "Except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall God governs in the affairs of men. I have lived, Sir, a long time..."
    Ben Franklin, arguably our least faith driven founding father

    I saw an article about this a while back, it looked interesting, but limited to how many antennas you purchase...

      Mental telepathy works best for the price .
      There are two types of people in this world. People that think the Goverment is looking out for their best interest and people that just think !

          That is not the same thing. What Hannco posted is for when you are in the woods with no service.

            great idea, but the 200 price tag is beyond ridiculous.
