The Accusat™ MT403FF and MT403FG digital Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRB) are designed for use when the safety of your craft and crew is endangered and you have no other means of communication. The EPIRB can save your life and the lives of others on board by leading an air/sea rescue to your precise location. In the past, extensive and lengthy searches have been carried out for missing craft, sometimes to no avail.
Your GME EPIRB is a self contained 406 MHz radio transmitter that emits an internationally-recognised distress signal on a frequency monitored by the COSPAS-SARSAT satellite system. The MT403FF and MT403FG contain a unique identity code which can be cross referenced to a database of registered 406 MHz beacons, allowing the beacon’s owner or vessel to be immediately identified in the event of an emergency. Both models can be manually activated by the operator in an emergency situation and will also automatically activate out of the mounting bracket if floated in water. Additionally each includes an ultra high performance solid state strobe and 121.5 MHz VHF homing beacon to assist in leading rescuers to your precise location.
