McMurdo will display the Fast Find 220 Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) at the Miami International Boat Show held February 14-18.

Nominated for a NMMA (National Marine Manufacturers Association)

Product Innovation Award at the show, the McMurdo Fast Find 220 is a

powerful distress beacon providing a direct method of alerting search

and rescue authorities where no other forms of communication are

available. The beacon uses the 406 MHz search and rescue satellite communication

system, COSPAS SARSAT and transmits a 121.5MHz homing


The McMurdo Fast Find 220 is waterproof to 10 meters and able to operate in temperatures as low as

-4°. Once activated the Fast Find 220 will transmit continuously for a minimum of

24 hours at a powerful 5 watt output. A LED SOS flash light assists with rescues

during limited visibility or at night. The compact beacon weighs just

5.4oz and features a reusable safe-stow antenna (new top cap will be

required prior to next use). The Fast Find 220 PLB provides

the user with a full six years of battery life, has no subscription

charges and includes a flotation pouch, lanyard and universal carry
