Choosing A Rescue Beacon

Are you looking for a beacon or satellite communicator?  Are looking to upgrade?

I am a happy SPOT 2 user.  It works well for me and I have used it under many types of conditions.  Last spring, I did a formal riew for the online magazine Seattle Backpackers Magazine.

That said, the folks at The Outdoor Gear Lab have done a very comprehensive review:

"We took some of the best and most popular emergency electronic devices and used them side-by-side for six months. Our mission: to find out what is the best for telling your family and friends you are okay and what the is best for sending out an SOS signal."

To read their complete review go  here.
