Buoyant Personal Locator Beacon
It may be small, but it's tough. The ResQLink™+ Personal Locator Beacon (PLB)
is a buoyant, GPS-enabled rescue beacon that's suited for outdoor adventures of
all sizes (think: everything from hiking and cycling to hunting and fishing).
Should you run into an unexpected survival situation, the ResQLink+ PLB will
relay your location to a network of search and rescue satellites, allowing local
first responders to more easily get you home safe and sound. Be Prepared
for the Unpredictable
- LED strobe light
- Self Test
- 66 Channel GPS
- Easy emergency activation
- Antenna clip
At 5.4 oz and topping just 4.5 inches, the ResQLink+ is both a small and
buoyant Personal Locator Beacon. Small enough to be carried in your pocket,
clipped to a backpack or stored inside an inflatable life jacket.
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
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
backcountry 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. And, in the continental U.S., search and rescue personnel are
typically alerted of your position in as little as five minutes with a
GPS-enabled PLB such as the ResQLink+.
Two built-in tests allow you to routinely verify that the ResQLink+ is
functioning and ready for use - with the push of a button, you can easily test
internal electronics and GPS functionality.
