Their both from Epirps but with two different frequencies, the blue one uses 121.5MHz and the red ones 406MHz. The first ones had a much lesser range, were smaller and a lot cheaper. They finished with them in 2010. Till then here a coastal boat was only required to have one of those (121.5) while a 406MHz was mandatory for a pleasure boat with a licence to sail more than 200Nm offshore. Since 2009 the 406MHz is mandatory for both licences.
