The ACR ResQLink Non-Buoyant PLB is a full-powered, GPS-enabled rescue beacon for general recreational users. Weighing just 4.6 oz and topping just 3.9 inches the lightweight ResQLink distress beacon is smaller than a mobile phone.
With three levels of integrated signal technology – GPS positioning, a powerful 406 MHz signal, and 121.5 MHz homing capability – the ResQLink PLB quickly and accurately relays your position to a worldwide network of search and rescue satellites. A built-in strobe light provides visibility during night rescues.
Registering your Personal Locator Beacon is required by law in most countries. Registering is very important because should your beacon ever be activated, it is how Search and Rescue Teams will know who you are, and contacts provided may be able to supply information about your specific travel plans. In the absence of this information, it may take longer for a search-and-rescue operation to begin.
