It doesn’t run on magic though, relying on flexible antennas to hook up “to Iridium satellites (whose low-altitude operations do not require large antennas)” for outgoing calls. Too bad you can’t take outgoing calls which pretty much makes the whole situation ironic – won’t you want to call others with a patch communicator in the first place?
