Joe Carberry presents: Personal Locator Beacons and Two-Way Satellite Communication Devices

(A Zoom link will be sent out prior to the program.)

Personal Locator Beacons and Two-Way Satellite Communication Devices - they're all the same, right? Well, actually, no....

Join us for a discussion of the pros and cons of dedicated search and rescue beacons versus commerical satellite messaging devices such as Spot, InReach, Bivystick, and Somewear.

Joe Carberry will break down how each of these systems operate, their flexibility, and rough cost to purchase and use.

Joe is an engineer who has been involved in Space Operations (Space Shuttle, GPS, and Military Space) for over thirty years. He has been hiking and climbing in Colorado for over 20 years and is a CMC trip leader, instructor, and HAMS graduate.


This program is open to the public and members alike. Please register to receive the Zoom link the day prior.
