Had my PLB re - battered & tested for about £80.
My understanding is there isnt a power output as such - as they talk to the coparsat system - receiving your info & GPS location ( once established on activation - with cold fixes taking on mime about 120 secs - much quicker than most of my other GPS ) . They also then ( but not all …...) - broadcast on 121.5 to allow DF for the final mile location if the GPS doesn't get 'them' to you .
Some colleagues chose to buy a new PLB when the battery expires and keep the old as a second/ back up/ on a passegengers LJ ( even though out of date ) - The extra cost of knowing you have new tech / battery and a second ( even thoughout of date) being well worth it in the even you may need to use a critical safety item https://www.force4.co.uk/mcmurdo-fastfi ... l?sqr=PLB&
