FastFind Ranger Personal Locator Beacon is a lifesaving distress beacon with impact resistant rugged casing, designed especially for outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers.
The FastFind Ranger Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) uses advanced technology packed into a simple, lightweight, palm sized unit. Using the dedicated 406MHz frequency, FastFind Ranger transmits your unique ID and precise GPS location to the global network of search and rescue satellites. Within minutes rescuers are alerted to your situation, and receive regular position updates. Finally, emergency services can home in on your beacon’s 121.5MHz transmission to find you. Explore the world with peace of mind. If you find yourself in a remote area without any other form of communication, activating your FastFind Ranger will summon emergency assistance.
Why choose a 406MHz solution?
406MHz distress beacons are the only solution to be recognised by Cospas-Sarsat, the growing global network of dedicated Search and Rescue satellites. They are not reliant on phone signals, they do not require a subscription fee and Cospas-Sarsat is an intergovernmental cooperative which provides direct access to SAR professionals. Solutions using frequencies other than 406MHz are available, but they often use call centres to locate, track and send appropriate help and subscription fee are commonplace. 406 beacon design features include; ruggedized body, guaranteed battery run time, operational test function, Strobe location device to aid night time rescues and multiple frequencies that combine global alert and localised homing.
