Re: Affordable GPS-EPIRB w/10 Year Battery Life
"Activation: Manual switch with test facility"
It is unclear whether this EPIRB has the old-fashioned and useless "test" switch, or it actually sends a test messagfe which confirms 100% operation of the transmitter by actually sending a message through the system.
So where do the test messages go? Does the EPIRB system have a protocol for test messages?
I am learning a bunch of stuff here, thanks!
