Put the power in the palm of your hand with a MicroFix™ 406 Personal Locator Beacon (PLB). It's as easy as pushing a button. With internal GPS, the MicroFix™ acquires your GPS position, and transmits it along with your personalized identifier code through the Cospas-Sarsat global satellite system, instantly alerting Search and Rescue forces that you need help immediately!

This worldwide humanitarian life saving system has saved over 30,000 lives, with no costly subscription fees

Transmits on 406 MHz via the Cospas-Sarsat satellite system with your unique, digitally
coded distress signal 

Onboard 16-channel parallel GPS acquires then transmits LAT/LON, providing SAR with your exact position to within 100 yards (110 meters)

Lanyard and removable holster provide functionality and allow for multiple mounting options 

Full functional self-test of internal circuitry, battery voltage & power, 406 MHz transmission, and GPS acquisition 

Flat, stainless steel antenna wraps compactly around the unit for easy stowage and is ready for rapid deployment.

Includes 121.5 MHz homing frequency

With three levels of integrated signal technology - GPS positioning, a powerful 406 MHz signal, and 121.5 MHz homing capability - the ResQLink+™ quickly and accurately relays your position to a worldwide network of search and rescue satellites. A built-in strobe light provides visibility during night rescues.

PLBs have been proven tried and true in some of the world's most remote locations and treacherous conditions. Just ask the 400 or so pilots, boaters and back country explorers who were saved by a PLB during a rigorous test program in Alaska. Based in large part on the test results, the federal government approved use of PLBs in the United States in 2003.

Even in extreme conditions and situations, the ResQLink+™ activates easily. Just deploy the antenna and press the ON button. With its powerful 66-channel GPS, the ResQLink+™ guides rescuers to within 100 meters or less of your position. And, in the continental U.S., search and rescue personnel are typically alerted of your position in as little as five minutes with a GPS-enabled PLB such as the ResQLink+™.

Two built-in tests allow you to routinely verify that the ResQLink+™ is functioning and ready for use - with the push of a button, you can easily test internal electronics and GPS functionality.
