    Personal Locator Beacon - thoughts?

    After my recent incident, I'm looking at a PLB. Any thoughts on what type/brand to go for?

    I bought one. It didn't work. I would wait for the next iteration
    I have nothing to do with BSAC any more apart from being a muggle member. So anything I write on here is likely to be complete bollocks. Hooray!

    I was on a boat in the indian ocean over New Year, and about 6 other divers had them. One day they decided to test whether they could communicate with the dhonie.....

    I'd wait for the next version . Give it 6 months to a year maybe.
    Oh - Nautilus Lifeline before Nick strangles someone.

    I carry a full PLB and the Nautalus lifeline.

    I carry the lifeline as a first responce because i want the dive boat to pick me up not a helecopter who insists i dump all my dive kit before they winch me up.

    I carry the full PLB incase the lifeline doesent work.
