Safety in a Small Package

The ResQLink 406 MHz personal locator beacon (PLB) is less than 4in long and weighs a mere 4.6 oz. In addition to its 406 MHz rescue beacon, which broadcasts a victim’s GPS position via satellite, the ResQLink also has a 121.5MHz homing beacon and an LED strobe to help pinpoint the victim’s exact location. With the addition of the optional subscription service, the beacon can be tested through the Cospas-Sarsat satellite system to ensure it is functioning correctly. There is also an integrated push-button test for the ResQLink’s internal electronics and GPS.

$325, ACr/Cobham Beacon Solutions.
