[ale] Iridium phones



Neither Iridium unit has a charger :-(

But there are chargers for the qualcoms. Globalstar is their service.  I charged one last night and it powered up. If I stand in the middle of my street it connects to the globalstar satellite network. Of course it has no account so I couldn't make a call.

Sure, one is yours :-)
