Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs) and Trackers
Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs) are designed for personal use i.e. carried on an individual.
Notes and recommendations:
A PLB with GPS capablity can greatly reduce the time it takes to obtain a location for the beacon. PLB's sold in New Zealand must meet AUST / NZ Standard 4280.2.2003. This standard requires that the PLB must be water proof and capable of floating.
