Bookmark and Share

The McMurdo Fast Find 220 personal locator beacon measures just over 4in long and weighs less than 6 ounces, but is still waterproof to a depth of 30 feet and transmits for a minimum of 24 hours in a distress situation. In addition to its 406 MHz signal, which contacts rescuers from anywhere in the world via the COSPAS SARSAT satellite system, the Fast Find 220 also transmits a 121.5 MHz homing signal to help SAR teams pinpoint a victim’s exact location. Other features include a flotation pouch and an LED flashlight to assist with rescues in limited visibility. $299. McMurdo
