About Fast Find
...... WATERPROOF ...... COMPACT ...... LIGHTWEIGHT ...... RUGGED ......
The Fast Find is a waterproof 406 MHz Personal Location Beacon (PLB) that should be carried by individuals, who are embarking on trips into areas around the world where there is little or no other form of communication or where other forms of communication are unlikely to work. The Fast Find acts as your personal Emergency Location Beacon, it is your last resort communication to the national and international search and rescue bodies and it should not be mis-used. The Fast Find is designed as a direct communication, to the 406 MHz Search and Rescue satellite system, its signal indicates that you are in need of urgent response and assistance.
Its small size belies its rugged construction and powerful output. There is no compromise. Once activated, the distress beacon will send out a signal for help, and continues to transmit for at least 24 hours, at a powerful 5 watt output, ensuring that your call for help gets through whatever the conditions. The pocket sized, waterproof beacon transmits at the press of a button, to alert search and rescue services to your plight.
For aviators having a Fast Find in your pocket means you can get at it. If you are trapped, injured or adrift at sea, just activate the Fast Find, and you can be confident that rescue teams will be locating you - and Fast!
In some countries the 406 MHz PLB may be considered as an alternative to an ELT or ELT-S. To confirm the rules and regulations that apply in your country you should contact your National Aviation Regulatory Authority.
