406 MHz Satellite 3 406 EPIRB
Satellite3 406™
Cat II 406 MHz EPIRB
Product: 2875

This redesigned workhorse utilizes a proprietary electronics package for faster, more stable 406 MHz transmissions to low-earth orbiting LEOSAR satellites. In an emergency, your registered, digitally-coded distress message is broadcast via a powerful 6-watt, 406 MHz signal (typically within 1 hour). An integrated 121.5 MHz homing signal then guides local Search and Rescue efforts.

Upgrade to GPS positioning with the optional GPS interface cable (sold separately). This connects the Satellite3 406™ to your vessel's GPS receiver to continuously update and store precise position data. GPS positioning provides SAR notification typically within 2-15 minutes.

The automatic category I Sea Shelter3™ bracket is fully enclosed and is made of high density, UV-stabilized polyethylene for years of extreme abuse, while the manual category II QuickDraw has a low profile and is easy to rail mount or secure on deck.

Send I?M OK messages with optional non-emergency messaging service.

// Full functional self-test including battery voltage and internal circuitry
// Bright LED strobe conserves battery power without sacrificing intensity
// Single, three-position switch for easy test and operation
// Lanyard coiled on recessed spool for nontangling deployment
