RESOURCES FOR EMERGENCY BEACONS
NOAA Emergency Beacon information: http://www.sarsat.noaa.gov/emerbcns.html

U.S. 406 MHz Beacon Registration database system: https://beaconregistration.noaa.gov/rgdb/
The online registration capability is a significant advantage to beacon owners. Beacon owners can update their registration information as often as it changes. And the update is done immediately instead of having to wait to either fax or mail your changes in. It is important to note, however, that your registration is valid for only two years and you are required to re-register the beacon every two years so that we can maintain up-to-date records on your contact information. We will attempt to contact you every two years to confirm this information. Please keep in mind: it is important to contact NOAA anytime your contact information changes!
