SPOTLIGHT: Everest call is a success

A British climber set a world record by making a mobile call from the top of Mount Everest yesterday. Rod Baber made two calls from the summit. The calls were possible because China set up a mobile base station with line of sight to the mountain's north ridge. Baber's trip began nearly a month ago as the Brit tried to learn how to live at high altitudes. The first call was made to a voicemail account, set up and recorded by sponsor Motorola. Article
