The ACR SARLink 406 PLB is a compact, light-weight personal locator beacon that can be used anywhere in the world. When activated, it sends out a distress signal that tells rescuers both where and who you are. It utilizes three important features including a GPS, a very powerful 406 MHz signal to relay information, and a 121.5 MHz homing beacon that lets SAR know exactly where you are.
The SARLink 406 saves lives in the most dire of situations, and can easily fit in a pocket or pack. It differs from the AquaLink model in its compact size and weight, coupled with its non-buoyant casing.

Locator Beacon Registration
It is mandatory that you register your PLB. It can be done easily at no charge at www.beaconregistration.noaa.gov. When activated, the unique identification code in your PLB is linked to the registration database. This way authorities can retrieve valuable information about you and your trip.
The SARLink is a satellite signaling device of last resort, for use when all other means of self rescue have been exhausted. Use when the situation is grave and imminent loss of life, limb, eyesight, or valuable property will occur without assistance.
