This, we believe, is the best PLB for those sailors, lone trekkers and bushwalkers, etc who take their adventure seriously. It has 6 independent means of rescue!
• 406MHz transmission (SAR standard)
• 121.5 homing beacon signal (Aircraft Band Emergency Frequency)
• GPS location readout
• A visual strobe
• A signal mirror
• Even a whistle on a lanyard!
This unit is currently the world's smallest PLB with a guaranteed 10 year battery life, a 10 year warranty and an estimated lifetime of 20 years. Apart from this, it is self buoyant, salt water and corrosion resistant to 3 metres, and automatically communicates to search and rescue on standard frequencies anywhere in the world. Yes, in other words, you can use it overseas. (You can fly with it as it has a non-hazmat battery). All this in a high-vis lime green impact resistant case only 88mm high and a mere 140 grams. We dare you to find a better, more reliable PLB with this performance, compact size and price. At this price you would be crazy to go out on a high adventure journey without this unit.
NOTE: This PLB is self-buoyant not self-righting. This PLB needs to be kept above the water surface to communicate reliably with satellites.
