Don't Touch That Button, 007:
On July 1, the FCC finally approved personal locator beacons (PLBs) for land use in the lower 48. Trigger the hand-held, battery-powered device in dire circumstances- say an off-piste tree well immersion-and it transmits a coded signal with your exact latitude and longitude. Translation: Search and rescue teams will no longer have to search for you. (acrelectronics.com)
