6. Activation (406 MHz and 121.5 MHz)
To activate your beacon in a distress situation, follow these steps (see
Figure 3 below).
1) Unfasten the antenna from the case.
2) Move it into the upright position
3) Depress the ON/OFF ( ) button for 1 full second.
You will hear a “beep” and your beacon is now activated. While
transmitting your distress signal, the red LED will flash once every 2
seconds, alerting you that your beacon is active. An additional “beep”
will sound every time your beacon transmits data to the satellites
(roughly every 50 seconds).
7. 406 MHz/121.5 MHz antenna position
For maximum performance you must deploy the beacon antenna into
the proper position as shown in Figure 3. If at all possible, be sure the
antenna is positioned facing the sky and avoid submerging in water.
This device is intended to operate on or above the ground or while
attached to your person above the water line.
8. Activation with GPS
If your unit is activated, the GPS receiver will start up, search to find
your LAT/LON and incorporate it into your 406 MHz signal. As soon as
the GPS receiver acquires valid positioning data, the red LED will stop
blinking and the green LED will begin flashing once every 2 seconds.
The same GPS data will be sent with each 406 MHz signal for the next
twenty minutes. At that time the internal GPS will start up again, search
to find your LAT/LON and incorporate it into your next 406 MHz signal. If
for any reason the internal GPS cannot update your LAT/LON, your last
position will be used for the next four hours. At that time the green LED
