Well had search through past posts and learned a lot. There seems to be lots of confusion over the whole EPIRB thing.

Has anyone found a price for the new 406 personal EPIRB's. There a re a few of the larger versions about but I only want a smaller one for the car and bushwalking/climbing.

There was one advertised but its still waiting "approval" from Cospas-Sarsat.

Any brands, prices etc? Cheaper to buy one offshore maybe?

Let the discussion begin!

Better than nothing I suppose. I will only be looking at the 406 from now on. Prices seem to be getting to a reasonable point.
I guess the big question is what will happen to all those 121's when it gets swtiched off....
Thats going to be a messy change over time. Would not want be at AUSSAR then!!
