6A: Satellite Phones
Unless you have an antenna and docking station, to get the best reception on your sat phone you'll need to head outside and look for an area with an unobstructed view of at least 80% of sky, as tall building and trees can interfere with reception. Once you have a strong signal, it can take from 10 - 30 minutes to receive your first alert.
