Re: Don't read this unless you have time . .
I'm a little curious about this too... only time I have ever had one, it looked pretty bullet-proof. But they happen; often the reported coordinates coincide with a marina!
I guess by that definition of "accident" there are no accidents... call it "non-emergency" if you like.
My model epirb is super easy to activate. The only thing covering the little red button is the wrap around antenna.
I agree as long as its where it should be not being monkeyed with or left out for people who dont know what it is there for that there should never be an accidental activation.
But its damn easy- and I like that fact.
