I'm thinking of purchasing a Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) as a safety
measure in the field, particularly when bird-watching in remote locations. I
wondered if anyone who has had any experience with PLBs could provide tips
on advantages/disadvantages of various brands. The PLB would be used
primarily in Australia. I'm looking for a lightweight PLB that one could
carry on a trouser belt, in a trouser pocket or in a side pocket of a small
back-pack. Thanks in advance to those who are willing to provide
