An Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) is used to alert search and rescue forces in the event of an emergency. It does so by sending a coded message on the 406 MHz distress frequency via satellite and earth stations. A Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) works in the same way but unlike EPRB which is registered to a boat, PLB is registered to the person and may be used on land as well as the water. Boat Accessories Australia stocks EPIRBs and PLBs by GME.
