    Wherever you are at sea or on land, the rescueME PLB1 provides the reassurance that emergency services can be alerted by the press of a button. The rescueMe PLB1 can be operated with a single hand in even the most challenging situations. A simple spring loaded flap covers the activation button preventing inadvertent use.

    rescueME PLB1 works with the only officially recognised worldwide dedicated search and rescue satellite network (operated by Cospas Sarsat). As this is funded by governments there are NO CHARGES to use this service.

    When activated the rescueME PLB1 transmits your position and your ID to a Rescue Coordination Center via satellite link. Rescue services are promptly notified of your emergency and regularly advised of your current location.

    • From Greg at 30/03/14 2:04 PM
      • The Rescue Me PLB is called "Ocean Signal" and describes how it performs in aquatic situations. Is it suitable for bush walking? Is there a more appropriate model?
      • Hello Greg,

        This PLB is perfect for Bushwalking use as well as aquatic use. There is other option out there but this is the only one we stock.

        Regards

        Gary Buckley

    • From LF at 21/08/14 7:08 AM
      • Is this beacon on the new Australian emergency signalling system? I heard one system was being phased out? How do you know that your unit actually works?
      • Hi Lf,
        You are correct. The 121.5 MHz system is being phased out and won't reach a satellite.
        The Ocean Signal 1 uses the 406MHz satellite signal and will be fine.
        Here are some links to info for you.

        Also, the following people are experts in all things PLB, so you can ask them anything as well. They are our distributors for PLB's

        Your question regarding if your unit actually works is a good one!. I am not 100% sure, but I think other than just doing the battery test, possibly you could call AMSA ahead of time and say that you are going to test your device by turning it on.
        I would contact AMSA and ask them.

        Safe to say, your beacon is on the new system.

        Thanks,
        Matt
