I’ve been carrying an ACR ResQLink+ PLB for over four years now. It’s small and light, attaches to jackets or fits in a pocket, and will float if dropped in the water.

Occasionally I get an audit email from the Rescue Coordination Centre (RCCNZ) 406 Beacon Registration team to verify that my personal contact and emergency contacts information hasn’t changed. They also keep you informed about the expiry date of the PLB battery (which for the ACR ResQLink+ can be replaced at the Wilco Marine Services service centre).
