The system reminds you that leaving the beacon on continuously gives the best
assurance of being rescued. SAR groups need the ongoing transmissions from the
beacon to most effectively find you.
If this message is accompanied by a green LED flash, the GPS coordinates have been
sent. If accompanied by a red LED flash, the GPS coordinates have not been sent.
NOTE: If GPS coordinates were not sent, the system will continue to attempt to
acquire the data and add it to the 406 MHz distress signal when available. Updated
GPS coordinates are sent every twenty minutes.
The system reminds you that optimum performance of the beacon is achieved when
the system is floating and/or kept upright.
