      I keep it in the pocket of my automatic inflatable pfd. Wear it whenever underway on my 17' Boston Whaler. As a professional merchant mariner I depend on ACR products every day epirbs, water lights, firefly lights, spotlights, etc. Rugged reliable well designed throughout the product line.

        Comments about ResQLink Personal Locator Beacon:

        I purchased the flotation case and wear the PLB on my belt at all times on the water. My larger EPIRB is in my ditch bag, but if I ever went overboard suddenly, I now have the added protection of always having this PLB with me. It is smaller and lighter than most cell phones. There is really no excuse to be without one.

          This Personal Locator Beacon is the real deal that uses the same system as all of the big boys. I was not looking for a communication toy but a serious peace of equipment that we could really rely on in times of trouble. The self test feature provide real peace of mind.

          I bought a floating case for it, and keep it in my pocket when fishing in shore and off shore.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The online manual was very poor when i purchased it. I called the company and eventually it was fixed.

          I have recommended this to my fishing freinds and one of them purched a unit.

                    This product is small so it doesn't take up much extra room. I pack it in my backpack of fishing tackle bag when hunting or fishing.

                      I purchased this unit and a floating case as a backup to my ACR EPIRB and to use in the dinghy. It is very comforting to have on board in case things happen faster than I can make a radio call or if out of VHF range.
