Search & Rescue 11-83-0000

11-83-0000

The SAR FM Marine Communicator is a low cost, simple to use, fully immersible emergency radio. The unit provides a means of communication from personnel in a distress situation to aircraft or ship where they cannot be reached and no alternative communication method exists.

The FM Marine Search & Rescue Communicator is a low cost, simple to use, fully immersible emergency radio. The unit provides a means of communication from personnel in a distress situation to a ship where they cannot normally be reached and no alternative communication method exists.

The unit is ruggedly constructed, is fully sealed and can safely withstand water immersion, making it ideal for use in marine distress situations. The single channel version of the radio can be pre-programmed to operate on any of the internationally recognised marine channels.

Each unit is supplied with a tough hard fronted pouch so that they can be stored safely without the likelihood of accidental activation. To reduce the possibility of loss, the unit can be secured by a lanyard fitted to one of the loops on the pouch or the loop on the case.

A lithium battery is recommended  for use with the unit, providing a shelf life of five years and an endurance of approximately twelve hours when the unit is activated.

The SARC is simple to operate. All controls are identified on the front panel by English language labels and international symbols. Battery test information and foreign language translations are provided on the back of each unit. The front of the pouch also contains foreign language translations identifying the product.
