Personal Locating Beacon ,

So you've gotten your GoPro, you want to go do extreme stuff. When your third-grade teacher told you that safety was cool, this is what she was talking about: Personal Locating Beacons. You get one of these and have to register it for free at sarsat.noaa.gov. With no annual fees you now have a locator similar to the ones in aircraft. In an extreme emergency when you need rescue anywhere in the world, pressing the button activates a location signal on a frequency only used for these devices (406MHz) and is picked up by one of several satellites on the cospas-sarsat network that provide world-wide coverage and local search and rescue services are notified.

In an emergency the signal lasts for a minimum of 24 hours on the sealed battery and there are covers available that float as well. Hunting in the mountains and get your leg eaten by a bear: activate the beacon and live. Rock-climbing but you slip and fall into a crevice: activate the beacon. Driving on back roads in the winter and get stuck in a blizzard: Beacon! Several devices like this have been credited with saving lives when New Orleans flooded. This could save your life in the most James-Bond future way that the Boyscouts never imagined.

Small and mighty, the ResQLink is a full-powered, GPS-enabled rescue beacon designed for anglers, pilots and back country sportsmen. With three levels of integrated signal technology – GPS positioning, a powerful 406 MHz signal, and 121.5 MHz homing capability – the ResQLink 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. PLBs have been proven tried and true in some of the world’s most remote locations and treacherous conditions. Just ask the 400 or so pilots, boaters and back country explorers who were saved by a PLB during a rigorous test program in Alaska. Based in large part on the test results, the federal government approved use of PLBs in the United States in 2003. Even in extreme conditions and situations, the ResQLink activates easily. Just deploy the antenna and press the ON button. With its powerful 66 channel GPS, the ResQLink guides rescuers to within 100 meters or less of your position.
