    Tracing Satellite Phones

    I read an article on how Osama Bin Laden used to hate using satellite phones because he could be monitored,
    it made me wonder just how trackabale are sat phones and can they be listened to in real time?
    I know they use SS7 like terestial phones.

    Don't forget that the GPS satellites are mostly owned by the government. I don't think that the public could access that type of information, but the government could do so.
    Don't make me turn this car around.....
