The FAST FIND 220 is small and light enough for you to carry on your person at all times. Using advanced technology, the FAST FIND 220 transmits a unique ID and your current GPS co-ordinates via the COSPAS-SARSAT global search and rescue satellite network, alerting the rescue services within minutes. Once within the area, the search and rescue services can quickly home in on your location using the unit’s 121.5Mhz homing beacon and flashing LED SOS light.
The compact FAST FIND 220 is quick and easy to activate, with a safe stow antenna which automatically deploys when the unit is activated. The battery enables it to operate continuously for a minimum of 24 hours. Waterproof to a depth of 10m, the FAST FIND 220 is also supplied with a flotation pouch, for easy retrieval.
"As a kayak angler I appreciate how precarious my position would be if things go wrong. Whilst all my preparation and planning is to be self reliant at sea with drysuit, PFD, VHF and flares its essential to have a foolproof back up plan. That is my McMurdo fast find PLB an item I recommend every kayak angler should carry." Keith Ward.
