Next Generation McMurdo FastFind 220 PLB
The latest upgrade makes McMurdo’s FastFind 220 the world’s first PLB utilising the Galileo satellite network with its accelerated location detection.
The PLB receives coordinates from the new precision satellite network in addition to the tried and tested GPS network and therefore provides ultimate reliability, accuracy and speed.
The FastFind 220 Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) uses advanced technology packed into a simple, lightweight, palm sized unit. Using the dedicated 406 MHz frequency, FastFind 220 transmits your unique ID and precise location to the global network of search and rescue satellites.
The FastFind 220’s electronics design was upgraded in 2019, offering accelerated location detection with the duel GNSS capabilities — GPS & Galileo receivers. Within minutes rescuers are alerted to your situation, and receive regular position updates. Finally, emergency services can hone in on your beacon’s 121.5 MHz transmission to find you.
Explore the world with peace of mind. If you find yourself in a remote area without any other form of communication, activating your FastFind 220 will summon emergency assistance.
