Registering your Personal Locator Beacon is required by law in most countries. Registering is very important because should your beacon ever be activated, it is how Search and Rescue Teams will know who you are, and contacts provided may be able to supply information about your specific travel plans. In the absence of this information, it may take longer for a search-and-rescue operation to begin.

All Personal Locator Beacons sold by Orbital Satcom are pre-programmed with the US country code. Whilst they will function anywhere around the world, the first authority to be contacted in an emergency situation would be NOAA with whom the PLB would be registered. Please contact us if you wish to have your PLB shipped with configuration for use in a country other than US.

This PLB should only be used in situations of grave and imminent danger to life. False alerts endanger lives and cause expensive disruption to Search & Rescue services. Deliberate misuse of the device could result in a penalty.
