NOTE: Category II beacons are designed to be manually deployed from the bracket and then activated manually or placed in the water to activate automatically. Two conditions must be met for a Category II beacon to automatically activate: It must be removed out of its bracket. And, It must be wet (i.e. placed in the water). Either condition, by itself, will not automatically activate the beacon. NOTE: All of the PLB and EPIRB products sold by The Binnacle are Canadian coded and require registration with the government of Canada's online Canadian Beacon Registry System. See Requirements Tab for more information on how to register.
