reading the posts it seemed that ky just wanted to know numbers to see if she could get a deal somewhere, i think all she wanted was people to register a FIRM interest before she went shopping, in true form it turned into a marathon and she got the hump, in a nut shell i think that if your'e up for one cheaper than you can get it normally than register your interest and take the option to buy if she gets the deal, but she don't sound like the type of person you want to pissoff, i must say i'm looking forward to meeting the family, she sounds like someone who could arrange some good cruising once they get use to there boat and that will be down to me after christmas

Well said ky. Thread is to see who wants one at a price negotiated by You in your time. I agree, no rush, keep haggling/searching. Wish those not interested would go and post in the bilges!!

Hope the op goes ok. Best wishes.

Hi and peaceful holidays for everyone. Has been great fun reading the threads of this forum. Good spirit and plenty of usefull advice. First icebrakers over here are already operational, thus wil take some time befor boating season starts again.


"McMurdo Fastfind 210 406 Mhz GPS PLB" seams like the optimal safety device for my needs. Thus i am interested to participate in the EPIRB Bulk Buy.

However there might be one catch, noted the following statement in the user manual.


"USER REGISTRATION
The PLB,s unique identifier must be registred with the national authority indicated in the
white area on the rear of the PLB"

So if the unit is purchased from UK, can it be registred in other location/country as it seams like the coutry code is already fixed in the unit? Or to put it another way, if I purchase the unit from UK, can i get it with my own country code?
Mayby thinking in too comlicated maners but better be on the safe side, as authorities over here are very strict on such issues.

Would be gratefull for any advice, thanks.

The McMurdo 210 will be factory encoded with a UK specified HEX code. I'm not in the UK (by a gnat's whisker) and bought a UK encoded PLB. The UK authorities were happy to register it/me, even with a foreign vessel callsign and personal details. They were Top Blokes!

My understanding was UK CG would only accept registrations from UK vessels and that within the 15 digit hex number was the MID (same as MMSI mid ( 232, 233, 234 or 235 for UK) which identifies your country.

Logic would suggest this. However, the MCA have my Irish callsign and personal details registered and a phonecall to Falmouth confirmed this. It's an odd world
