NOAA Beacon Registration

The only reason I'm writing this is because it's Sunday morning, the registration office is closed, and I wanted to see if anyone has experienced the same issues as me. I certainly plan on calling the office tomorrow. For the last two weeks or so, i've attempted several times to access the beacon registration site to transfer my information to a new EPIRB i just purchased. Every single time, the site times out and I've not been able pull up the registration page at all. Anyone else experience this? Would anyone else mind trying for me real quick?

Re: NOAA Beacon Registration

Just logged in and renewed my registration for my PLB. Also changed some details.

Where are you hanging up? Can you log in at all, or is it timing out when you try and save changes to a form?

Re: NOAA Beacon Registration

When I enter this address

HTTPS://beacon registration.noaa.gov

I just wait and wait and nothing happens and then it times out.

And it doesn't matter how I go about trying to access the page....By typing the address, by clicking a link, google search, through the sarsat site....Whatever....I get the same result.

Re: NOAA Beacon Registration

It's probably a routing issue from whatever ISP you're trying to connect from. Either change to a different internet connection or just wait, it will likely clear up.

Try this link. If it's not accessible, it's almost certainly a routing issue:

Re: NOAA Beacon Registration

Fwiw, I registered my new EPIRB just fine last week.
