    Item # 804324

    REI Members get back an estimated $ 49.90 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    This Personal Locator Beacon should only be used in situations of grave and imminent danger, and only as a last resort when all means of self-rescue have been exhausted.

    COSPAS-SARSAT is an international satellite system that provides distress alert and location data to assist Search and Rescue operations. It detects and locates the signals of beacons operating on 406 Megahertz (MHz). The position of the distress and other related information is forwarded to the appropriate Search and Rescue point of contact through the COSPAS-SARSAT mission control center network. The goal of the system is to support all organizations in the world with responsibility for SAR operations, whether at sea, in the air or on land. The COSPAS-SARSAT system provides distress alert and location data to rescue coordination centers for 406 MHz beacons activated anywhere in the world.

    This personal locator beacon has been pre-programmed with the US country code. If your country of residence is outside the Unites States, you will need to have the beacon reprogrammed by a local dealer or service center, which may involve additional cost.

    Items with a lithium battery can only be sent via Standard ground shipping, and can't be shipped to P.O. Boxes, Alaska, Hawaii, U.S. Territory, APO/FPO, or International addresses.

    Made in USA.

    ACR Electronics Aqualink View 406 Personal Locator Beacon is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from When all else fails People say these are expensive. What is your life worth? In motorcycling we say "if you have a $10 head, wear a $10 helmet". If you read reviews of other devices like "SPOT" you will find many unhappy purchasers. There is no substitute for a device like this, except maybe a satellite phone. I have NOT used this in an emergency, however I have the subscription service that allows you to send a generic email letting friends know you are o.k. and it has worked very well. If you do a lot of remote travel alone like I do, you need this device (or the less expensive "no email" version) for the time you may really need it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great item,, and it works for sure This is a great item and it works for sure. I know this because one of my inspectors while inspecting it hit the signal button and in a very short time the police where looking for it, after homeland security called the police looking for the beacon / who was in distress. This is no toy.....
