McMURDO V2 Fastfind 220 PLB with GPS
The device can be reprogrammed and registered in the country of your choice/location - free of charge.
Registering your personal pager is required by law in most countries. It is programmed with the ship's MMSI, or with the device's serial number - depending on the ship's flag.
Registration is very important because if your beacon is ever activated, it is how search and rescue teams will know who you are, and the contacts provided can provide information about your specific travel plans. In the absence of this information, it may take longer to initiate a search and rescue operation.
PLBs have been tried, tested and proven in some of the world's most remote locations and treacherous conditions. Even under extreme conditions and situations, the FastFind 220 is easily activated. Simply unfold the antenna, pull out the tamper-evident seal, and press the ON button.
Deliberate misuse of the device could result in a penalty.

SmartFind G8 EPIRB (Auto Float Free Housing)
The G8 AIS is the first EPIRB to have standard 406MHz, 121MHz & GPS capabilities AND include AIS for localised rescue. This combination is a result of new technology but also new attitudes to AIS as a search and rescue tool, plus the realisation that accelerated alert detection and location accuracy will save even more lives.
MEOSAR Compatible® for enhanced detection and location performance, the G8 range includes an industry first; a four-frequency EPIRB, combining the global alerting of 406 MHz with the localised locating and tracking power of AIS.
A fully protective, spring loaded enclosure, the auto-housing automatically deploys and activates the EPIRB when it is submerged between 1 - 4m. The SmartFind E8/G8 auto-housing incorporates fixing points which ensure previous* McMurdo auto-housing units can be retrofitted with minimum impact, when upgrading your vessels EPIRB.
