ACR Aqualink 406 2882 Personal Locator Beacon ACR Aqualink 406 2882 Personal Locator Beacon

Includes Internal GPS, 5-Year Battery, Belt Clip, Lanyard and LED

The AquaLink Personal Locator Beacon broadcasts a unique registered distress signal that not only tells rescuers where you are, but who you are. The onboard GPS can fix your position to within 100 meters and then utilizes a powerful 406 MHz signal to relay your distress call to orbiting satellites.

ACR Exclusive: Built-in GPS acquisition test mode allows you to test GPS functionality up to 12 times over the life of the battery. Tap in to the same field-tested rescue technology used by the U.S. Military, Coast Guard, NATO Special Forces and Arctic explorers.

Performing a full functional self-test of the PLB’s internal circuitry, battery voltage & power and 406 MHz transmission gives you the peace of mind knowing your PLB will work the moment you need it the most.
