Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB)

The Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (E.P.I.R.B.) is a supplemental means of sending a distress signal. If a vessel sinks, the E.P.I.R.B. is designed to float free and begin to transmit a distress signal. The signal is in Morse Code and includes the name and call sign of the vessel. The frequencies are 121.5MHz and 243MHz, which can be received by aircraft as well as surface vessels. The E.P.I.R.B. is colored orange to provide maximum contrast with the ocean’s surface.
