ACR Electronics recently sent Amver a Tweet about a new feature they offer called 406link.com. This feature allows subscribers to both test their 406 emergency beacon and let friends and family know they are ok.
This feature is in line with services offered by the SPOT satellite messenger. SPOT allows users to let friends and family know they are ok by sending a pre-programmed message and GPS location.
What emergency beacon do you carry on your vessel? Is your 406 beacon properly registered?
