goTenna 1

goTenna is a device that pairs with a smartphone to send and receive texts and location information even when there is no cellular or satellite signal in the area. The device works by generating its own VHF signal that can reach from half a mile up to six miles depending on certain conditions, allowing users to wirelessly communicate with any other goTenna owners within their range.

Interested parties can preorder a pair of goTenna devices through the company’s site for a significant discount.
