About 406 MHz Personal Location Beacons (PLB)

• A PLB (such as the Kannad SafeLink Solo) is used to alert search and rescue services in the event of an emergency. It does this by transmitting a coded message on the 406MHz distress frequency.
• This message is relayed via satellite and earth station to the nearest rescue co-ordination centre.
• The SafeLink Solo also has a secondary homing beacon, which transmits on 121.5MHz. When the rescue services get close, this allows them to direction find on the signal
• SafeLink Solo is also GPS-enabled, which means it has built-in multi-channel GPS receivers., making it much more accurate and will enable rescue services to come straight to your location

• We are an authorised Kannad stockist - All of our PLBs are Australian models and come with serial numbers which is required when registering with the Australian Beacon Register.
• Registration is free and can result in a more efficient search and rescue effort. As stated, digital 406 MHz distress beacons transmit a unique code that identifies a particular beacon when it is activated.
• A registered 406 MHz beacon will allow the Australian Maritime Safety Authority’s (AMSA) Rescue Coordination Centre to access the registration database and find contact details; details of registered vessels, aircraft or vehicles; and details of up to three nominated emergency contacts who may be contacted if a beacon is activated and contact cannot be made.
• Beacon registration can be done online http://www.beacons.amsa.gov.au/ or by contacting 1800 406 406.
