"For decades, our aircraft have been required by government mandate to carry an Emergency Locator Transmitter (ELT) that transmits on the civilian 121.5 MHz and military 243.0 MHz emergency frequencies. Pilots and rescuers have both become pretty soured on these ELTs because they have been the source of thousands of false alarms and precious few actual "saves" to their credit, not to mention being a source of mounds of paperwork and maintenance costs. Most aircraft owners would pitch them in a flash -- and will be permitted do just that in 2006 when the satellite system that monitors those two frequencies is scheduled to be phased out." 

"While ELTs are known for their uselessness, 406 MHz PLBs offer a huge technological advance. I predict their small size, economical prices and advanced functionality will make them a must-have item for most pilots to carry in their flight bag or survival kit, as well as when camping, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, and the like." - Dr. Brent Blue (read the full article)

Accidents happen every day in the outdoors, whether you fall out of a tree stand, break a leg during a hike, or roll over on an ATV. In the outdoors, an every day accident instantly can become a life threatening situation, and rescues may take days or weeks if you’re not prepared. Why wait days being stranded in the outdoors hoping someone will fi nd you? Put the power in the palm of your hand with Sarlink ™ 406 Personal Locator Beacon. Now you can turn that life threatening situation into a successful rescue story.

Head out with confidence. With three levels of integrated signal technology — GPS positioning, a powerful 406 MHz signal and 121.5 MHz homing capability — the SARLink™ quickly and accurately relays your position to a worldwide network of Search and Rescue satellites, reducing search time and increasing your chances of survival. It’s reliable signaling technology that has saved more than 25,000 lives since 1982.

The SARLink™ broadcasts a unique registered distress signal that not only tells rescuers where you are, but who you are. The onboard GPS can fix your position to within 100 meters and then utilizes a powerful 406 MHz signal to relay your distress call to orbiting SAR satellites. As local Search and Rescue is deployed, a separate homing signal and integrated LED strobe light guide rescuers to your location.

Be Responsible, Be Prepared, Be Safe.

The SARLink is light in weight and small enough to be easily carried in a pack or pocket by skiers, hikers, hunters, kayakers, climbers, pilots, snowmobilers or any other outdoor enthusiast. Performing a full functional self test of the PLB’s internal circuitry, battery voltage & power, and 406 MHz transmission gives you the peace of mind knowing your PLB will work the moment you need it to the most. ACR Exclusive: Built-in GPS acquisition test mode allows you to test GPS functionality up to 12 times over the life of the battery life.

!!! Important Information !!!

All 406 EPIRBs and PLBs sold in the USA are default programmed and serial coded for registration with NOAA in the USA. Those shipped internationally must be registered in the country of residence, *with the exception of U.S. citizens living overseas.* They have the choice of registering with NOAA/USA or in their country of residence. It is cautioned that the beacon should be registered in the country where the emergency contact numbers for the beacon are located to avoid possible language barrier issues in the event of an emergency situation. *All 406 MHz EPIRBs and PLBs sold by AeroMedix.com for registration in a country other than the U.S.A. can be programmed and serial coded for the intended country of registration as a "Special Order" and once programmed become non-returnable.*

When to use your PLB FCC rules state that a 406 MHz PLB must only be activated in a distress situationand only in remote areas where conventional communication facilities are not available. A "distress situation" involves an incident concerning grave danger to the safety of human life.
Because the consequences of a false distress signal are serious, we recommend that you:
  • Avoid activation except in a true emergency
  • Read all the instructions and know how your PLB works
  • Ensure your PLB is in good working order and the battery has a full charge
  • Make sure your PLB is properly registered and that all information is up-to-date
