    Comments about ResQLink+ Buoyant Personal Locator Beacon:

    Crewman was launched overboard at sunset. He activated his epirb when the Deckvest inflated. We were able to find him with our 121Mhz directional antenna. got back to him in less than 5 mins. Very happy. Every person on the boat wears one for that reason.

                  Comments about ResQLink+ Buoyant Personal Locator Beacon:

                  This is an exceptional device. When photographing wildlife, I am often by myself in remote locations. Having the locator device is as important as the pepper spray for large predatory mammals.

                  Like the fire extinguisher, parachute, and safety belt, an essential tool - hopefully never required.

                  The one thing I would like it to have is a carabiner clip and/or small housing with same on the outside. I fasten the beacon to my backpack via the velcro straps, but would prefer a clip of some kind better.

                  I did not click the reliable button as I have not required the use of the unit yet.
