GME Accusat Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB)

ARCHIVED

Date posted

The Hazard

After exhaustive testing we have identified a fault in the microprocessor of certain units
that effectively shuts the beacon down.

What to do

If you have a GME EPIRB, please check the model number and serial number. The serial number can be found on the left side of the beacon at the base of the identity panel. If you own one of the affected units listed above, please contact GME at recall@gme.net.au or your local distributor to arrange a replacement of your beacon at no extra charge. Standard Communications would also like to take this opportunity to remind all EPIRB users, regardless of the brand, to regularly test the unit. There should be a simple self-test mechanism on all units. You should also ensure that beacon batteries are replaced at intervals recommended by the manufacturer.

Availability

Standard Communications Pty Ltd designs and manufactures a range of Emergency
Position Indicating Radio Beacons (EPIRBs) marketed globally under the GME brand.

The Problem

After exhaustive testing we have identified a fault in the microprocessor of certain units
that effectively shuts the beacon down. We are concerned that the beacon may not work
