A super compact Personal Location Beacon for anyone on land or water who may need rescue. The Oceansignal RescueMe PLB1alerts global emergency services to your location and need for assistance via satellite at the press of a button. No subscription required, this is a compact PLB that can be packed in to a kit bag, attached to a lifejacket or even be placed in a last minute grab bag.
Waterproof to 15 meters with a 7 year battery life and with 24 hours+ of operation time this is surely a must for any solo sailor or short handed passage maker. Using the GPS satellite to fix your position a signal is then sent to via emergency satellites to the nearest rescue centre. The Oceansignal RescueME PLB1 operates on the global Cospas Sarsat rescue system and as well as transmitting your location acts as a homing beacon to aid with the final pinpointing of the person requiring rescue. The unit has an easily deployed antenna and a high intensity (1 candela) strobe to aid location in low light or night time conditions.
Each PLB has a free flotation pouch ad unique mounting clip. You should register your PLB to link it back to you, it does not matter which country it is registered in but it is highly recommended that you give emergency contacts who will know your whereabouts in case of activation. The Ocean Signal PLB1 complies with IATA dangerous goods regulations for carriage either hand cabin or hold baggage.
