Better safe than sorry

Terrafix 406Finally the PLB have arrived. The Personal Locator Beacon. Straight from the USA. The PLB is one of those things you need to have on the icecap. Every expedition who wants to enter the Greenland icecap must have one.
In case of emergency, the PLB will be activated by the expedition team. But only when all other means of communication fail.
When activated, the PLB sends a signal to a satellite. After interception of this signal, local authorities will be informed . They will be able to locate us within 1,5km radius. The PLB saves lifes and is one of the most important items. It is one of the last imported steps before entering Greenland. I just hope the investment in the PLB was worthless and we never have to use this device.
