Wherever you are at sea or on land, the rescueME PLB1 provides the reassurance that emergency services can be alerted by the press of a button.

The rescueMe PLB1 can be operated with a single hand in even the most challenging situations. A simple spring loaded flap covers the activation button preventing inadvertent use.

rescueME PLB1 works with the only officially recognised worldwide dedicated search and rescue satellite network (operated by Cospas Sarsat). As this is funded by governments there are NO CHARGES to use this service.

When activated the rescueME PLB1 transmits your position and your ID to a Rescue Coordination Center via satellite link. Rescue services are promptly notified of your emergency and regularly advised of your current location.

    Ocean Signal PLB1

    Posted by Dave on 7th Oct 2019

    Don't know why in this day and age we still have people that don't plan for the possibility of needing help in remote inaccessible areas, simple and cheap solution purchase a PLB, one of the cheapest insurance policies to have, compact and easily carried without even being aware its being worn, make that weekend adventure a peaceful event knowing should the worst happen there is an easy way to get help. Even experienced people can get into trouble, carrying one of these gives peace of mind for those adventuring by themselves.

    This Ocean Signal rescueME 406MHz GPS PLB1 Locator Beacon is the second one I've purchased first for myself and the second for my Son as we are both keen hunters and go into remote parts of the South Island its good to know we have some security in the form of the Ocean Signal rescueME 406MHz GPS PLB1 Locator Beacon on hand Its small and unobtrusive in its pouch on your knife belt well recommended.

    Good Service

    Posted by Col Chidgey on 16th Apr 2019

    The RescueME PLB I ordered from SkippersMate arrived within one day, was accompanied by immediate and continuing communication, and was well packed. A very slick operation delivering a product at the best price I found anywhere in Australia.

    Ocean Signal

    Posted by Barry Hawker on 15th Apr 2018

    I have purchased 3 of these for the family. The greatest features are the light weight and compact design. Ideal for the high country hiking and hunting we do in the alpine New Zealand country. Fortunately we have not needed to activate any of them. I also carry mine in my vehicle from time to time in case of road accidents.

    Keeping pack weight down can be a challenge. This PLB is just right.

    Compact and lightweight PLB and excellent customer service.

    Posted by Gayle Philip on 18th Nov 2016

    I purchased this for stand up paddling, kite-surfing, sea-kayaking and hiking trips. It is small, compact and lightweight enough to fit in my hand, easily slip into a backpack or attach to a PFD or harness. The beacon appears to be well made and in test mode, it is easy to use. I hope I will never have to use it.

    Skippersmate service was fantastic. The product was delivered promptly and I would highly recommend them as a retailer.

    Very small

    Posted by Ron on 2nd Jun 2016

    I looked around for a small epirb to slot into the pocket on my PFD. This seems the best/smallest out there. It comes with a small float bag to make it buoyant, but I just tie it into the PFD internal hook. Can't say how well it works as I've not been in an emergency.

    So far So good

    Posted by Terry Tremble on 14th May 2016

    As my purpose was for having a PLB for emergencies in remote landbased locations, this fits the bill nicely. Small, compact and easy to use, long life, and able to be stowed easily without worry. As far as how good it works, I hope/plan to never find out. Received PLB following day from ordering, very quick.

    easy plb purchase

    Posted by Duncan Gourley on 8th Jan 2016

    I bought this plb and live in NZ, it arrived quickly and registered it with AMSA no problems at all.
    And a lot cheaper than buying exactly the same plb in NZ.
    Very happy

    looks good, good price excellent customer service

    Posted by Anke Fronius on 27th Jul 2015

    I purchased this from skippersmate in Oz for use in New Zealand. Same item is available in NZ only for a rediculous higher price.... I did quite some research and I'm convinced that the item will work for me in NZ very well. I will just have to register it with AMSA in AU.
    If it was only 50bucks more expensive in NZ I wouldn't mind buying it from a NZ dealer, but it is much more than 50...

    In addition to what Peter wrote on his website on the topic I'd also like to refer to the following resource for Kiwi buyers: http://www.kask.org.nz/plb-or-epirb/

    On that website you can see what maritime NZ answered when really confronted with the topic.

    The PLB has a good size I believe. Not too large, not too small, lightweight. Shipment was fast and correspondence with skippersmate was super fast and easy.

    If I ever use it I will provide an update, but fingers crossed.
