    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.

    The floating ACR Electronics ResQLink+ 406 GPS personal locator beacon relays your position to a global network of Search and Rescue satellites when you are in trouble.

    • Powerful 406 MHz satellite signal and 121.5 MHz local homing signal help reduce search times and maximize your chances of survival in an emergency
    • ResQLink+ 406 broadcasts a unique registered distress signal that tells rescuers where and who you are
    • 66-channel GPS fixes your location to within 100m; a satellite signal alerts Search and Rescue personnel and a local homing signal guides rescuers to your exact location
    • In addition to the local homing signal, a super bright LED strobe light helps rescuers find you quickly
    • The ACR Electronics ResQLink+ 406 personal locator beacon is carried easily in a pack or pocket—and it floats!
    • Fully functional self-test of the circuitry, battery power and 406 MHz transmission gives you peace of mind knowing your beacon will work when you need it
    • GPS acquisition test mode allows you to test the GPS functionality up to 12 times over the life of the battery
    • Once activated, the ACR Electronics ResQLink+ 406 GPS personal locator beacon will continue to transmit for up to 30 hrs. in typical conditions
    • Waterproof at 16 ft. for up to an hour and 33 ft. for up to 10 min.

    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 preprogrammed 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 ResQLink+ 406 GPS Personal Locator Beacon is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insurance policy The registration with NOAA was easy. Quick confirmation back from them. That said of course I have not had to use it. The unit test was very easy. I enjoy remote hikes and camping on my own out of cell range. However the real reason was I take my grandchildren on long road trips. I don't get too remote with them but far enough where they could be in a tough spot if something happened to me. So both my 13 and 9 year old got lessons in activating it. They understand the proper circumstances and I feel better knowing they can get help if ever it should be required

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor battery replacement support I have purchased an ACR plb and need to replace the battery. I live in rural CO and have tried to contact customer support but with no luck. Also, I have researched battery replacement for these units and it appears to be quite expensive. If anyone has had a better experience, please advise. I would not buy this product again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staying Alive I have hiked and biked in many places that do not get cell service. I also crawled out two miles after breaking my ankle in six places, it was not fun. I am worried about getting charged for being rescued, but a choice between a big bill and death, I will work it out. This will still not take the place of a well setup pack with med kit, but it sure makes my wife feel allot safer. We also carry it often in the car when we have our five month old because getting 911 to answer is often a joke in Sacramento and in case of an accident or med emergency it will be handy to have.
