McMurdo E5 SMARTFIND EPIRB - Cat I
The McMurdo Smartfind range of EPIRBs meets the demands of recreational boaters and all classes of commercial vessels alike. This stylish unit is available as a standard 406 MHz EPIRB, or, for enhanced position location, with a built in high accuracy GPS. These units are available with a manual bracket or an automatic deployment housing.
Each EPIRB is programmed to transmit a unique serial number which is registered with national authorities. In the U.S., NOAA provides this service without cost to the mariner. The transmitted distress signal is automatically relayed from the COSPAS-SARSAT satellites from anywhere on earth through an automatic ground station to a control center where it is decoded and the distress and registration details are passed on to the relevant search and rescue authorities. A secondary 121.5 MHz homing transmitter further aids search and rescue in locating your position.
