  Fast find 4 me...
  Posted by: on Oct-25-12 11:45 PM (EST)

Peter, I had my "fast find" with me last Sun. while we were out at Goat Rock. If you want more user info,(though I think Glen did a nice overview), check out some of the posts over on,(the search function sucks but the subject has been talked to death). In my decade involved in SAR we had some less than optimal results with the Spot. I'm told their system works better now but for a rescue beacon the PLB's are superior IMO. One drawback to the PLB's is the antenna needs to be deployed above the water so could be probematic but not impossible if out of your boat. Feel free to pm me if you care for any further details on the info I provided., AKA tOM
