sardynamics A question I often get asked is whats the difference between an EPIRB and PLB.
Pictured is an EPIRB on the left and a PLB on the right.
EPIRBs are required for boats that travel more than two nautical miles off the coast and PLBs are smaller and designed to be worn or carried by individuals. PLBs DO NOT meet carriage requirements for maritime vessels travelling more than two nautical miles from the coast but when combined with an EPIRB they provide the quickest and most accurate means of raising the alarm during an emergency.
Please ensure if you do have a Beacon that it is registered with AMSA. On the recent Moreton Bay rescue it was raised that the beacon was unregistered. This holds back important information for rescue crews such as vessel type increasing search times.
Go to beacons.amsa.gov.au for more information.
Do you own a beacon? If not contact SAR Dynamics for information on the range of ACR Distress Beacons we sell.
TAG A FRIEND WHO MAY BE INTERESTED IN THIS OR DOUBLE TAP IF YOU AGREE.

sardynamics An ACR resQmate EPIRB similar to this one helped save two lives off Moreton Island this morning.
It is reported that the occupants of the capsized boat were NOT wearing lifejackets.
Also off the coast north of Townsville three people were winched to safety by #rescue521 after there boat capsized on Saturday.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't underestimate the ocean and always prepare for the worst.
Carry a Distress Beacon at all times and wear a lifejacket.
ACR Distress Beacons are available from @sardynamics to suit all activities
Follow our page and tell your friends.

  •   mfarin42 @self_fish lol I got sat phone, epirb, plb, submersible vhf and I still never feel 100%, I like being on my toes. I do always feel better when the self-test comes back green though 🏻 1mon
  •   blue197320 @mfarin42 Do you recommend that PLB ? what vhf do you have? Im putting a kit together now before it too late. 1mon
  •   hammerhead2121 Ya I'm looking to get a VHF to keep on me at all times, what do you have? I'm looking at the "ICOM IC-M92D 01 Handheld" @mfarin42 1mon
  •   mfarin42 @blue197320 yes this is a great PLB for the price and you can do some cool things with it on 406link.com 1mon
  •   mfarin42 @hammerhead2121 that ICOM is a very good VHF, I have similar 1mon
  •   hammerhead2121 I've been reading the reviews, and I've heard they're good, the only complaint I've seen to see is that it's pretty big for a handheld @mfarin42 1mon
  •   wishlistfishingteam Never leave home w/o an epirb and other emergency supplies: whether it's the law or not everyone should have one. 1mon
  •   rapsales I have the same one and yes I do a yearly check. Safe sailing 4w

ripnlipoutfittersofficial An Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon or EPIRB is used to alert search and rescue services in the event of an emergency.It does this by transmitting a coded message on the 406 MHz distress frequency via satellite and earth stations to the nearest rescue co-ordination centre. This should be the NUMBER 1 thing (other than life jackets) a boater, (especially offshore guys) should have on board. (You can even attach them to your life jacket) Better yet have 2 or 3 them. #ripnlipoutfitters #prayingforperryandaustin 1mon

sardynamics Just spent two hours homing into this old 121.5 EPIRB from the air and via the handheld homer on the ground.
Was deliberately tied off to a tree in a small lake at Ningi north of Deception Bay. Such stupidity as it ties up rescue assets and delays our response to REAL emergencies.
