Thanks for posting the article, great story. Was that a PLB or one of the satellite messenger units — Spot, InReach? Regardless, great save.

Based on the comment about tracking, assume it was a SEND, not a PLB

I´m not allowed to read the article.
Was it about this elderly gentleman who got stuck with his car and was found halfdead by a mountainbiker by accident? Read about this in our local news.

What is this "SEND" Doug mentions? I know what PLB is.
