With all the talk of EPIRB's, "ditch bags", etc...and with the recent loss of a father and his 3 teenagers just off the coast of SW Florida
, I thought some might want to know more about EPIRB's, how they work, how the COSPAS-SARSAT system works, etc....
As well as, remember that MF/HF-DSC signaling is just as big of a part of the GMDSS as the 406mhz EPIRB is...
So, for those wishing the details of EPIRB
operations, and how to best deploy/use an EPIRB, please have a look here..
