Standard Communications Pty Ltd is recalling certain GME brand EPIRB units manufactured between January 2005 and February 2008. In some units a fault in the microprocessor may shut down the beacon and it may not work when required.
The affected units are the MT400, MT401 and MT403 beacons with serial numbers between 50101000 and 80250722. The serial number can be found on the left side of the beacon at the base of the identity panel.
Contact GME at firstname.lastname@example.org or your local distributor to arrange a replacement of your beacon at no extra charge.
