VIDEO: How a KTI Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) works

While I was in the Simpson Desert last year filming South Australian Outback Adventure, I shot this quick video explaining how the KTI Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) works.

With over 90% of Australia not covered by mobile phone networks, carrying a PLB is a great idea so you can get help if things go wrong.

Unlike satellite phones, Spot Trackers and other satellite communications devices, a PLB has no monthly or annual cost so you can buy it, throw it in the glovebox and forget about it until you need it.

They are also a sealed unit with a 10 year battery life so you don't need to think about keeping the battery charged.
