Just a nudge at your GPS stuff..

Civilian GPS devices are generally not as hardened as milspec devices and should not be used in the AOR (both in the physical and electrical/jamming sense).. I seriously believe that these pieces of technology should be considered a secondary tool that provides ease in their jobs.. but a compass and a map should too be a requirement.. regardless of milspec'd hardware.

Cellphones

+ - Deploying to Afghanistan 1 1

I'm not sure how well connected or how stable of a connection the base I'm deploying to is which means VoIP might simply not be an option. I have however noticed in my searches that Afghanistan has recently boomed with cellular coverage though that too seems to be difficult to ascertain.

I'm curious if the Slashdot community has any information or experience regarding international cellular services offered in this country and the means of obtaining it."
