Personal Locator Beacon
The club has 2 Personal Locator Beacons (PLB) for use by leaders on walks.
Tony Hickson (email email@example.com) and Graham Conden (0418 647 951) are custodians of the PLBs. You can contact them at any time to borrow one. A distress beacon only says to emergency services ‘I need help’ and ‘here is my GPS location’.
