Use AIS net beacon for PFD?

Has anyone looked at AIS net marker beacons?

I think they would be good for sewing onto a PFD in the event that they fall overboard. It should work over 200 hours and is rechargeable. It won't beat a MOB beacon or any of the MOB alarm systems but is is lower cost.

Interesting. I'm don't think it would be a very good replacement for a PLB though, but maybe as an adjunct to one. A PLB sends out a distress alarm along with position, similar to an EPIRB.

Would like to learn more.
