TerraFix 406 GPS Personal Locator - $200 (bend)

12
TerraFix 406 GPS Personal Locator Beacon


Can include GPS coordinates in the emergency satellite transmission via a handheld GPS, using the optical interface or using the onboard, internal GPS
FastACQâ„¢ technology relays accurate GPS information to the satellites faster than all other internal GPS PLBs
The 406 MHz transmission of the activated PLB sends a personalized, coded signal that uniquely identifies your beacon
Personalized signal tells Search and Rescue (SAR): who you are, where you are and that you are in a life-threatening situation
The COSPAS-SARSAT satellites that receive the PLB signal encircle the globe, allowing you to signal for help from anywhere on the planet
Signal is matched to the beacon-owner's data, providing rescuers with the user's name, address and contact phone number
Owner's data may also provide other important information such as any medical condition that rescuers may need to be aware of
Made to exceed the rigorous testing standards of COSPAS-SARSAT, FCC, NOAA and the U.S. Air Force Rescue Coordination Center
Once within the 1-mile search radius, the PLB also transmits a homing signal, allowing SAR to pinpoint the PLB's exact location
Comes complete with a 5-year lithium battery and a 5-year warranty
Waterproof, rugged construction is buoyant to avoid loss if dropped in water
Case and instruction label are oil-, water- and UV- resistant, with non-corroding metal components
Internal power source is designed to work when all else has failed

Made in USA.

This Personal Locator Beacon should only be used in situations of grave and imminent danger, and only as a last resort when all means of self-rescue have been exhausted.
