The unit tests out perfectly but the replacement date on the battery is 4/11.
Asking $165 shipped in USA.

Thanks for the heads-up!! It was manufactured by Northern Airborne Technology Ltd. Their website states that they no longer support their EPIRBs. I emailed them to find out if they knew of a source for batteries, but have not received a reply. If anyone can use it, you can have it for whatever the cost of shipping is.

Roger-
If you aren't afraid of screwdrivers...or whatever that has been closed up with...open it up. The batteries are probably something simple, like four lithium "D" primary batteries from SAFT, that can be obtained for $75 in the US.
The maker may be gone, service may be gone, but the batteries should very much still be a commodity item.

Re: EPIRB - NAT SATFIND 406 PRO

hellosailor, you are correct......This unit is one of the few designed so that the owner can change the batts. However, contrary to what the salesman told me, it does not have GPS. It is of no use to me but I hate to throw it away if anyone can use it...just pay shipping.
