I purchased a boat
from a gentleman in France
, and it included an Ocean Signal EPIRB1. Because it was originally programmed in France
, it has a UIN encoded for France.
is now registered in the US with the Coast Guard. In order to update my EPIRB
to my vessel and my contact information, I need to have it reprogrammed with a new UIN, encode to the US. And, I need to identify a place to get it reprogrammed.
I found a place in Miami
(Daytrex) that will do it for $75. I am looking for other alternatives, as this is the only place I found. Any one know of other alternatives? I do not have any problems with Daytrex, but for all I know someone will do it for $10.
I'm heading north in a couple of months and am willing to go wait to get a better price
, as things seem to get less expensive the further north you go.
