I would like to purchase an ACR for my trip around southern Africa this summer. I'm sure there are people that have bought plb's for a trip and haven't used them sense. Any ideas on where I can look for such an item? Thank you.

You also can post a Want to Buy post in the Trailspace Classifieds.

You'll have to make sure there's a way to determine the unit is functioning properly via a test, before your trip. And that it will cover the areas you visit.

You might want to narrow down your own model choices first, before posting or bidding on units.

New ebay- http://shop.mobileweb.ebay.com/searchresults?cmd=SKW&kw=acr+plb&x=21&y=17

Used ebay- http://shop.mobileweb.ebay.com/searchresults?cmd=SKW&kw=used+acr+plb&x=9&y=15

Personally, if I was in the market for one I would go new. From what I saw after looking around the price difference isn't too drastic for me to purchase used. I would have alot more faith in a new unit as opposed to a used one. That's me though. Maybe its my OCD. I don't know much of the tech info on them just what their purpose is. I am sure someone will chime in on this one. Happy hiking. :)
