McMurdo FastFind 220 GPS Small and Light Personal Location Beacon (PLB)
This item is worth 1350 Marine Miles points!
Utilising an internal GPS/GNSS receiver your position can be narrowed down worldwide to within 62m. Once in range of your location, rescue services can then further narrow down your position using the 121.5 MHz inbuilt transmitter and visually checking for your flashing LED SOS light. Working on the same basis as EPIRBs, PLBs aren't tied to being registered to a vessel, they're registered to a person, meaning they can easily be carried with you at all times without the need for re registering. Not being tied to a vessel also means that they really can be carried anywhere, on the water, hiking or mountaineering, or any remote locations that may require your PLB for emergency back up. Subscription free, they require no further expense once purchased.
Quickly and easily activated in an emergency, the McMurdo FastFind 220 GPS PLB has a safely stowed antenna which fires automatically when the PLB is activated. The inbuilt battery ensures it can operate continually for a minimum of 24 hours. Constructed for all eventualities, it's also waterproof to a depth of 10m, although it comes supplied with its own flotation pouch to keep it close at hand. Marinestores top tip, try and keep it as high as possible, if you're in the water stow it between the inflated bladders of your lifejacket.
