Re: PLB vs EPIRB what and why?
Fair enough correction jack. My point was simply that they aren't replaceable underway, so ever text sent reduces the duration of the emergency functions.
Mine recommends 12 over the length of the battery. I have used it mid ocean and that is about it, other than testing the test function.
The text that is sent and the recipients have to be chosen in advance.
