As is the quote from my post

Quote:
The ResQLink+ is a buoyant PLB but is not intended for operation in water
Intended operational environments include on ground and above ground
including held in hand
Near the bottom of the specs.

The Aqualink is also COSPAS/SARSAT approved. The ResQLink+ is not. (They will still rescue you.)
