When they aren't looking for you this will bring them. This expensive piece of equipment might be justified on a very remote expedition in dangerous waters.







Survival in the Palm of Your Hand

Going outdoors means getting away. Whether it's camping, hiking, mountaineering, hunting or fishing, an escape to solitude is why we do it. Being out of touch can have its advantages. But, being out of touch can have its disadvantages, too. What if you or someone in your party becomes seriously ill or is injured? There could be a freak blizzard or avalanche. Your two-way radio is severely limited in range and requires someone to be listening on the channel. And don't expect your cellular phone to work at the bottom of a remote canyon. There's a technology that's saved thousands of lives worldwide in military, maritime and aviation emergencies. It's the satellite-aided emergency locator beacon. In aviation, it's known as an ELT or Emergency Locator Transmitter; in marine use, the EPIRB, or Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon. In short, it gets help fast. This technology is now available to you. For nearly a decade now, an advanced type of ELT or EPIRB - 406 MHz transmitters - has been available to ships and aircraft. The 406 transmitters send a coded signal that uniquely identifies each transmitter. Rescuers know exactly who and what to look for within minutes. Recently, the Federal Communications Commission has approved 406 MHz transmitters for land-based activities. ACR Electronics is ready with the 406 GPS I and 406 GPS I/O Personal Locator Beacons
