In Response To: Re: Open water safety ()

: I think you misread- I was asking if there is a device LIKE an epirb but that
: just sends a signal to make you show up on a radar.

Here is what you are looking for...

Note... 2 windows appear... close the menu window.

The Signal enhancing transponder gets a signal from a radar and amplifies it. it sends it back and voila... you appear on their screen. What's the catch? They are tres expensive... require power... and take up space.

Safe Paddling!
