personal locator beacons

A Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is a personal electronic transmitter used to alert rescuers that there has been a life threatening man over board (MOB) situation with a need to be rescued.

When activated, the PLB sends out a signal on either a 406MHz frequency or Local Area System using 121.5MHz, VHF DSC and/or AIS.

For that extra piece of mind when out at sea on an inflatable boat, especially if you decide to go that bit further out than normal they could save your life.
