MT410 406 MHz PLB Australian Made

GME’s AccuSat MT410 Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) has been leading the world's PLB market due to it's features, and innovation.

The MT410 AccuSat PLB offers a massive 7 year battery replacement life, and a 7 year warranty, the unit also features a high intensity flashing LED and a ‘Non Hazmat’ battery pack for simple and cost effective transportation - all contributing to the unique AccuSat advantage.

Please note that a 406 MHz Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) is not a substitue for a 406 MHz EPIRB.

The obsolete 121.5/243 MHz analogue COSPAS SARSAT service was terminated in February 2009 and now, only the 406 MHz digital beacon signals are being processed by the satelites. Consumers have for some time recognised the major benefits of a 406 MHz over a 121.5 MHz device in faster, more accurate detection, personal identification of each beacon, reduced search area resulting in a faster more targeted response in a life threatening situation. However the prohibitive cost of 406 MHz beacons has always been an issue.

Today with cutting edge microprocessor technology, GME’s engineers have been able to provide the outdoor adventurer with a 406 MHz PLB solution that is not only affordable, but provides enhanced peace of mind for boaters, bush walkers, 4 x 4 enthusiasts and aviators should they ever require emergency assistance.

GME has been designing and manufacturing emergency beacons in Australia for over 30 years. In that time literally hundreds of lives have been saved in Australia and around the world.
