comment What practical issues do I need to be aware of when hiking or camping on my own?
regarding communication with SAR, I don't know about in other countries, but in the uk you can register with the emergency services to be able to send a text message which will be of advantage in low signal areas as a text requires less of a signal to send. Added to that is the text will be prioritised to bypass standard text traffic, all you need to do is text register to 999 and follow the instructions of the reply you will receive. this was originally for the disabled who where unable to use a voice service but it was also found to be of advantage to hikers, rock climbers, etc.
