At 5.4 ounces and just 4 1/2" long, the ResQLink+™ is the smallest buoyant Personal Locator Beacon available today.

In emergency situations, it relays your position quickly and accurately to a worldwide network of Search and Rescue satellites, while the built-in strobe light increases your visibility. Includes GPS and self-test features that can be combined with ACR’s optional 406Link.com site functions.

      Comments about Acr Electronics ResQLink+ Buoyant Personal Locator Beacon:

      ACR makes a small water-resistant pouch to fit the ResQLink. It can easily be carried on your belt and it should be - at all times on the water. A PBL or EPRIB on the console or in a ditch bag is of no use in case of an accidental fall overboard. It only takes a small slip or sudden wave for this to happen - wearing your PLB gives extra protection and peace of mind, especially when boating alone. This unit is very compact and intended to be attached to you; there is no good reason not to. And it REALLY works - I had to activate mine once and it was a lifesaver.

            Sure hope I do not have to use the PLB. But; if I do I am counting on the the ResQ Link + working like the reviews and advertising says it will. The West Marine is very close to my house so, I have had excellent help and cooperation from the staff and their knowledge of products you offer.

                To get the rebate you must register quickly. I'm hoping I'll get it. It is important for rescues that you do register so the rebate requirement of noaa registration is good.
