Accidents happen every day in the outdoors, whether you fall out of a tree stand, break a leg during a hike, or roll over on an ATV. In the outdoors, an every day accident instantly can become a life threatening situation, and rescues may take days or weeks if you're not prepared. Why wait days being stranded in the outdoors hoping someone will find you? Put the power in the palm of your hand with ACR MicroFix 406 Personal Locator Beacon. The smallest, lightest PLB available is easily attachable to clothing and equipment, giving you peace of mind knowing it is with you at all times. Now you can turn that life threatening situation into a successful rescue story. It's as easy as pushing a button, and with an internal GPS receiver the MicroFixTM will acquire your GPS position and transmit it along with your personalized identifier code through the COSPAS- SARSAT satellites instantly alerting Search and Rescue forces that you need help, immediately! The MicroFixTM works fast, if GPS data is present in the beacon's fi rst transmission, SAR forces can be notified and start planning your rescue in as little as three minutes.
