Re: Affordable GPS-EPIRB w/10 Year Battery Life
If your mail is being delivered correctly, the beacon folks are very good about sending you new decals every year, need 'em or not. I expect they must be very diligent about purging outdated contacts, because they're spending a lot of money on "free" annual updates for something that just doesn't seem to demand being done annually otherwise.
Gee. I must be on the Agency's shoot list. I cannot recall ever getting any kind of up-date via mail (although I do get notices from the CG about our documentation every year). Usually I renew all our registrations via the Agency's web-site every January as a matter of course but overlooked the registration of our PLB 100 this year.
