McMurdo has introduced two new Fast Find emergency personal-locator beacons that broadcast on both 121.5 and 406 MHz. Once activated, the units broadcast for 24 hours. Both come loaded with an SOS LED light that flashes the Morse code SOS pattern. According to McMurdo, most emergency signals that are broadcast on the 406 MHz signal are “heard” within 3 to 45 minutes; it then takes 3 additional minutes to determine the position of the GPS-enabled Fast Find 210, and 45 minutes for the Fast Find 200.
$289 for the Fast Find 200, $299 for the GPS-enabled Fast Find 210. Revere Supply; 877-REVERE-8.
