Panbo and increasing PLB effectiveness
If you are not a regular viewer of Panbo where all things boating electronic are reviewed, you might be missing out on a bit of boating-related education you could use. While he often gets way into nitty gritty electronic details, there are many quite useful tips to even the electronically ignorant amongst us. Today's email contained a link to Panbo lead me to a review of personal locator beacons and how to increase their usefulness to you and rescuers by simply logging into the registration system and noting your current float plan in the comments section. Since many alerts the USCG gets are false, would it not be better to know that when you set yours off they read that on this very day you are off the coast on a planned cruise or fishing trip?
