Today only, get $20 off one of our favorite new products!
At the tail end of 2015, we released the RockBLOCK, a nifty SatComm transceiver module that allows you to send and receive short messages from anywhere on Earth, 24/7.
Product Marketing Manager Adam really wanted me to tell you guys that “we’re not kiddium, we love Iridium.” I’m sorry.
Maybe you want to transmit weather information from mid-ocean? Or use it to control your robot in the middle of the desert? Perhaps you need to communicate in an emergency, when other networks might not be available? RockBLOCK can help you. You can even have two-way communication between two RockBLOCKs, like SPACE WALKIE TALKIES. And who doesn’t want to send messages to space!? Nick Poole doesn’t not want to, that’s for sure.
Now for the real kicker – today only, the RockBLOCK module is $20 off! Tell us what you’ve done with your RockBLOCK, and if you haven’t tried it yet, today’s your chance to get one at a discount!
