As I'm mostly a MF Alpa shooter, I thought I'd post this question on this forum. I often find myself in locations far from cell coverage and carry a PLB (Personal Locater Beacon) with me for emergencies. My current PLB has passed its expected battery life (5 years) and I either need to buy a new one or have the battery replaced by the manufacturer.
If anyone feels there is a PLB (or EPIRB) that you bought because it seemed better than most, I'd really appreciate your thoughts. Prices have come down to about $250 ($50/annum for the 5 year battery life), so it may be more worthwhile to jump on 5 year newer technology. Any thoughts or experiences you share would be greatly appreciated.
