In order to ship hazardous materials (HAZMAT) the shipper must have HAZMAT certified personnel. SEA will provide HAZMAT paperwork along with proper packaging and labeling for shipments directly to our customers. If the shipment must be sent to another location such as a freight forwarder, SEA will provide the HAZMAT paperwork to the original ship to address only. Please contact your freight forwarder prior to ordering to verify that they are HAZMAT certified. SEA is not responsible for issues that arise if your freight forwarder does not have HAZMAT qualified personnel.

Virtually all 406 MHz beacons incorporate a self-test mode of operation. Standard Self-Tests of beacons usually involve pressing a button or lifting a lever on the beacon and holding it for a few seconds. This usually results in the beacon flashing an LED or Strobe and/or creating an audible sound that indicates that the internal circuitry of the beacon is functioning correctly. You should always carefully follow the beacon manufacturer's instructions when carrying out a self-test as it is possible to get false results or inadvertently trigger a false alarm if perform the self-test incorrectly. If the beacon fails, then you should contact the beacon manufacturer or an appointed service agents for further advice and instructions.
Emergency Locator Transmitters (ELTs) are distress radio beacons which transmit location information about aircraft directly to Search and Rescue (SAR) forces letting them know that the owner is in grave and imminent danger.
A UIN is a Unique Identifier Number that is programmed into each beacon at the factory. The UIN number consists of 15 digit series of letters and numbers that make up the unique identity of the beacon. The UIN is on a white label on the exterior of the beacon. The UIN is also referred to as the Hex ID.
You should check the local regulations of any place you plan to visit with your beacon. Some countries require you to have a radio license and some countries even have restrictions on the use of beacons. However, if it's a true emergency, then you should always activate your beacon.
