European EASA ETSO'd
It transmits 406 Satellite and 121.5 MHz frequencies, and accuracy for ground search is between 1 and 3 kilometers. Transmitting on the 406 MHz Satellite and 121.5 MHz frequencies ensures that your distress signal reaches the right search team at the right time so you can rest assured that help is on the way. The Ameri-King 451 is undoubtedly your best choice for fast and accurate transmissions. Let SkyGeek make your flight safe, pleasant and worry free!
Note: It is required that every 406 ELT be registered by the aircraft owner after installation, re-registered every two years, and re-registered if there are any changes to information provided to NOAA in a previous registration, such as telephone numbers, aircraft registration number, change of owner, etc.
Every 406 ELT is programmed at the factory with a unique identification code used by the Rescue Coordination Center to determine if an emergency has actually occurred. This identifier is called the 15-Hex ID. It is located on the front label of the ELT. This unique identifier is stored in a database maintained by NOAA. It can then be accessed to contact the owner in the event of an ELT activation. Registration is free, and can even be done via the Internet on the NOAA website at: www.sarsat.noaa.gov, or at www.beaconregistration.noaa.gov.
This 406 Mhz ELT is programmed for USA Registered Aircraft. If your plane is registered in any country other than the United States we will need a 406 Mhz ELT Programming Data Sheet completed Click Here to Download
