Drastically increase your probability of survival at sea with the multiple built-in redundancies of the GlobalFIX marine distress EPIRB.
This EPIRB is pre-programmed for registration with the US country code and must be registered to a vessel with a US MMSI number. Output Power : 5 W plus/ minus 2dB. 50 mW plus/ minus 3dB. Operational Life : 48 hours minimum at minus 4 degree F ( plus 20 degree C)
If you require registration outside of the US, please purchase our alternative listing for ‘Programmed for Rest of World’. We include at no charge a reprogramming service on this alternative listing for the country of your choice.
Registering your EPIRB is mandatory 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 & emergency contact details.
This EPIRB 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.
