Thank you for this link. I was not aware there was such a service which I think is/will be very worth while.
Also, it is wise to check the date of one's batteries and one's Beacon Registrations to ensure all are up-to-date. I just did so and, to my chagrin, realized the registration of my PLB 100, used on our dinghy and 12' sailing dinghy was out of date (now corrected!).
