The ideal environment or location to send a message from your SPOT device would be a horizon to horizon view of the open sky.  There are two satellite constellations that require a line of site to your device to acquire your GPS location and transmit messages.  We understand that this type of location cannot always be attained, so here are a few tips in finding a good location to send your message.
•    Ensure that you are not too close to any tall buildings or structures that may block the view of the open sky.
•    If you are in a heavily forested area, attempt to find a clearing
•    If you are in a valley, attempt to elevate as much as possible
