Everest mobile call effort begins
According to the BBC, British born Rod Baber plans to climb Everest and then establish a world record by making a mobile call from the summit.
Weather permitting, the attempt to reach the peak of Everest is scheduled to take place in late May.
Making a phone call from the summit of Everest has become possible thanks to a mobile base station installed in China that has line of sight to the north side of the mountain."
