Default ARC Aqualink 2884 PLB - Caribbean?

Hi All,

Do I need to special order this for use in the Caribbean (Grand Cayman)?

I fish solo often, is this the best I can currently get in a PLB format if I end up in the water (I will have it attached to a PFD)?


Thanks
Shan

I do not think there are different versions for different areas. Shoot them an email. Be sure about it!

From the ACR FAQ


Question:

Can I use my 406 MHz beacon anywhere in the world?

Answer:

You should check the local regulations of any place you plan to visit with your beacon, some countries require you to have a radio licence and a few countries have restrictions on the use of beacons, however if it's a real emergency you should always activate your beacon.



Registration outside of the United States

In countries other than the United States, 406 MHz beacons are registered with that country's national authority at the time of purchase. The sales agent should have assisted you in filling out the forms and sending them to the country's national authority. Alternatively, visit our Registration database or many countries allow online registration in the International 406MHz Beacon Registration Database (IBRD) at www.406registration.com.

To verify that the unit is properly programmed for your country, view the UIN label on the back of the unit. In the event that the beacon is not programmed for your country, the sales agent (if properly equipped) can reprogram the unit for the correct country.


.......



Also...I think we will see rebates starting in Feb.
