Description

All our beacons are NZ Coded and with maximum battery life.
We have fresh stock delivered monthly.

Wherever you are, at sea, on land, the rescueME PLB1 provides the reassurance that global emergency services can be alerted by the press of a button.


The rescueMe PLB1 can be operated with a single hand in even the most challenging situations. A simple spring-loaded flap covers the activation button preventing inadvertent use.

rescueME PLB1 works with the only officially recognised worldwide dedicated search and rescue satellite network (operated by Cospas Sarsat). As this is funded by governments there are NO CHARGES to use this service.

When activated the rescueME PLB1 transmits your position and your ID to a Rescue Coordination Center via satellite link. Rescue services nearest to you are promptly notified of your emergency and regularly advised of your current location to assist prompt rescue.

The rescueME PLB1 is provided with a flotation pouch to fit the PLB1 into to enable it to float. Please note that the PLB1 will not float in an operating position in the pouch. Please ensure the PLB1 is firmly attached to the pouch with the provided lanyard, using suitable self-locking knots.

    PLB

    Great size, weight, design and good reliable reputation if had to use it. Extending aerial a little fiddle, but only a very minor consideration. Great, prompt service from Gearshop.

    Ocean Signal Rescue Me 406 Personal Locator Beacon

    So small! So light! Haven't tested it yet, but I'm very happy with how small it is compared to my old PLB. Shame it's only 7 year battery life, but if it means it can be half the size that's all G.

    The PLB is tiny, weights very little

    I liked the size, the weight and because of that, I am happy to carry it where-ever I go.

    I can't comment on how it actually performs. Hopefully I won't ever need to find out.

    Ocean Signal Rescue Me 406 Personal Locator Beacon

    Excellent service from Gearshop. The PLB1 was delivered to my home within 24 hours of ordering. Quite impressed by the small size, less than 1/2 the size and weight of my old PLB. Comforting to know it is available for backup, just hope I never have reason to use.
