Emergency Beacons for Boaters Going Digital

By
Real Estate Agent with Fathom Realty

For all you boaters in Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake and Portsmouth, here is some good information.  Along with our tv transmissions going digital soon so are the Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRB) for boaters are going digital on Feb 1.  The coast guard along with other rescue personal will only respond to digital 406-MHZ beacons.  The digital beacons are 50 times more powerful then the analog ones.  Satellites will be able to track the beacon to 100 yards while at the same time the beacons will not give false positives meaning the coast guard will be on station quicker.  

The beacons must also be registered with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration by going to www.beaconregistration.noaa.gov or by calling 888-212-save (7283)
