EPIRBs (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons) are completely self-contained radio transmitters designed for emergency use. When activated, they transmit an internationally recognized distress signal. They are designed to be used when the safety of you, your craft or your crew is endangered and you have no other means of communication.

GME has combined over 20 years experience in designing and manufacturing EPIRBs to produce products that lead the industry in personal safety equipment.



All GME EPIRBs have the following features:

  • Completely waterproof.
  • Fitted with long life batteries capable of retaining up to 90% of their original Amp Hour capacity after 10 years.
  • Safety seal which serves to indicate that the beacon has never been turned on and the batteries have not been used.
  • Test facility to allow the beacons functionality to be tested without fear of accidentally transmitting a distress signal. The test actually measures the transmitters power output, not just the battery condition.
  • Extended GME warranty. GME Electrophone has full service and maintenance facilities to maintain your beacon and provide recertification where required.
  • Unrivaled in Technology, Performance and Price.
  • Ground breaking Patent Pending microprocessor based design delivers unparalleled performance and value.
  • Zero warm-up Digital Technology, many other beacons can take up to 15 minutes to reach optimum operating temperature.
  • High reliability solid state strobe replacing old fashioned xenon tubes.
  • Rugged lightweight easy-to-mount compact design.
  • Easy, in-built self-test facility with audible alert confirms correct operation.
  • COSPAS-SARSAT, C/S T.001 and AS/NZS 4280 approved.
  • Antenna deploys automatically when the unit is removed from the quick-release mounting bracket.
  • Automatically activates on immersion in water (when removed from the bracket) or can be activated manually if desired.
  • 6 Year battery replacement period
  • Extended 6 Year GME Warranty
