278E7AB5B8FFBFF

August 14th, 2014

If you’ve searched and found this post, it’s probably because you’ve found my Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) which has the UIN / Hex Code 278E7AB5B8FFBFF. Hopefully it’s because I lost it, rather than because I used it in an emergency. The correct procedure if you find a PLB is to report it to the police. All PLBs in Canada should be registered with the Canadian Beacon Registry. Mine is, and they have my contact / emergency info. Thanks.

    It seems you are using an old web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer 5 or below). This is a security risk to you, since Microsoft no longer releases updates for old versions of Internet Explorer.
