    The ResQLink+ is a satellite signaling device of last resort, for use when all other means of self rescue have been exhausted, where the situation is grave and imminent and the loss of life, limb, eyesight, or valuable property will occur without assistance.

    • ResQLink+ weighs less than a couple of PowerBars®
    • Just 4.5 inches, it’s smaller than the cell phone in your pocket
    • Small and mighty, the ResQLink+ is a full-powered, GPS-enabled rescue beacon designed for boaters, pilots and water-borne sportsmen
    • With three levels of integrated signal technology —GPS positioning, a powerful 406 MHz signal, and 121.5 MHz homing capability, the ResQLink™ quickly and accurately relays your position to a worldwide network of search and rescue satellites
    • A built-in strobe light provides visibility during night rescues.
    • PLBs have been proven tried and true in some of the world’s most remote locations and treacherous conditions

    • Even in extreme conditions and situations, the ResQLink activates easily
    • Deploy the antenna and press the ON button.
    • With its powerful 66 channel GPS, the ResQLink™ guides rescuers to within 100 meters or less of your position

    • Free Registration Required
      • It is mandatory that you register your PLB. It is fast, easy and free
