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.

Mate. Your comments about your beacons and I quote ‘AU Hex ID Coded for NZ’ what a fucking pile of shit. They are iether coded for NZ or Australia. Can you not make enough money marketing to Australia so you have to try and flood the market here with cheap shit like the KTI and even the rescue me that are AU coded??? You are endangering people’s lives mate. Fuck off from the NZ market if you can’t supply Nz coded beacons. You are already of the watch list at RCC NZ. And I’ll make sure I bring this page to The NZLand SAR and police as well. How would you like it if we started selling PLBs in AU with NZ coding cheaper than you can sell your stuff? Just stay in the AU market mate and stop Peddling your Australian coded shit here.
Peter answered my questions, gave explanations and immediately opened my preferred payment option automatically excluded due to my unique situation. Guidance provided to register PLB. Informative updates by email along the way. Solid product manufactured in the UK.
