EPIRB - Delay

How long before the rescue authorities respond to your EPIRB or PLB?

Sinking of Ship:

Note how long before search was rescued, proves that PLB is not a big send helicopter button and only having a proper lifesaving equipment as well will save your life.

Very different situation to anything a Ribnet user would encounter unless they took up crossing oceans - mind you Alan Priddy used to poke his nose in here from time to time!

Bless the Brazilians, they decided to sleep on it and see if it was still going off the following morning.

Nice link though, thanks.

I've no idea what the two of you may be hinting at - all the close shaved Brizilians I know are just very good with balls - just not sure what that has to do with EPIRBS
