This comment raises the idea that PLBs may not be allowed inland in the UK. A later comment refuted this, but I never even considered they would be disallowed anywhere, but simply rented one and took it with me on a hike in Norway and Sweden (fortunately I didn't use it).
- Are Personal Locator Beacons banned anywhere in the world?
- Are Personal Locator Beacons useless in some countries, e.g. because nobody will come anyway? Where could I find information about this?
