PLB - New Zealand
Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs) are designed for personal use in the aviation, land and marine environments and are becoming increasingly popular in a number of fields, both in industry and recreational. PLBs are required to operate for a minimum of 24 hours once activated.
These New Zealand Coded 406 MHz beacons provide an encoded (GPS) location. The satellite system can calculate a beacon’s location, but locating a distress site is usually much faster if the beacon signal provides a GPS location and is registered with the beacon's country code rescue centre.
All PLBs sold here include GPS activation.
An earth receiving station in New Zealand receives beacon signals relayed by COSPAS-SARSAT satellites due to activation, processes them to determine the location of the beacon, and forwards the signals to the Rescue Coordination Centres in Lower Hutt - Wellington.
