- This Personal Locator Beacon is pre-programmed for registration with the Australia country code. Whilst it will function anywhere around the world, the initial point of contact during an emergency situation would be the Australian Search and Rescue authorities with whom the PLB would be registered.
- Registering your Personal Locator Beacon is required by law in most countries. Registering is very important because should your beacon ever be activated, it is how Search and Rescue Teams will know who you are, and contacts provided may be able to supply information about your specific travel plans. In the absence of this information, it may take longer for a search-and-rescue operation to begin.
- This ACR PLB operates with class 2 (non-hazmat) lithium batteries, which must be replaced every 5 years. Once the PLB has been activated the battery will typically exceeds 24 hours transmitting a GPS signal. Once you have activated your PLB, simply submit your story to ACR and send your used beacon back to them so they can have it mounted on their Wall of Fame and they'll send you a brand new beacon of equal or greater value
- This PLB should only be used in situations of grave and imminent danger to life. False alerts endanger lives and cause expensive disruption to Search and Rescue services. Deliberate misuse of the device could result in a penalty.
