01/19/18 04:21 PM PLB Battery replacement? by unimogbert

I've not been successful searching ETS for info on this topic other than one poster saying that replacement was about the cost of a newer unit.

My beacon (ACR SARlink vintage 2011) is old enough to need battery swap. It still passes self-test but that doesn't speake to battery capacity remaining.

I've sent emails to 3 listed businesses that allegedly do support for ACR.

Does anybody have their experience to add?

Father finds son using helicopter in Australia

Just illustrates the needs we discuss here so often, have a plan, have some basic equipment (not sure if he could have used it because of injuries), let people know where you are going and the route you will use. Turned out well, but many such accidents have not.
