The Fastfind Max G Personal Location Beacon is the very latest products from McMurdo designed to provide individuals with the highest chance of being found quickly in an emergency. The Fastfind Max-G is a revolutionary hand-held PLB (Personal Location Beacon) that features a built-in GPS receiver (Global Positioning System) combined with a 406 MHz transmitter and 121.5 MHz homing signal. In the event of an emergency, an alert signal is transmitted to COSPAS-SARSAT satellites and forwarded to a rescue coordination center within typically 3 minutes. The built-in GPS receiver will provide latitude and longitude coordinates to give a position to within typically 98 feet anywhere in the world. The Fastfind Max-G comes complete with lanyard and designer splashproof carry case to enable users to keep the PLB safely attached at all times.
