Not really....


From the article... "Approximately 97% of these alerts are false alerts, including accidental activations and bracket failures. Our sole focus is your safety on the water. Keeping your EPIRB registration information accurate helps us to better respond to your situation, and in turn prevents us from unduly hazarding our first responders and wasting resources at taxpayer expense. "


Chasing your tail is never good training after a couple...the tough part of missions need to be practiced, not chasing ghosts....


Been there, done that.....
