A satellite phone was a communications device used primarily by those not wanting their conversation monitored or located by adversarial forces. Satellite phones, unlike cell phones, send and receive signals directly to orbiting satellites, giving them a much larger range than cell phones. They are usually brick-shaped with a retractable, foldable antenna.
