The world's highest phone call

A British climber Rod Baber aims to make the world's highest phone call!

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. "There's no reason why it should not work," said Mr Baber who already holds a world record for reaching the highest point of every European nation.

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.
