will this device work in the mountains...
will this device work in the mountains below the Turkey border in IRAQ. Kurdistan to be exact? if so which one do you recommend for this area
I would contact the company directly - there is a good support system in place (I would bet it does)
Why would you buy this one over the Q Link...
Why would you buy this one over the Q Link 406?
There are a few small differences, but the major reason would probably be that this one floats and the QLink 406 does not.
Peace of mind
Our group has carried one of these on a few trips, and in my mind, it adds a ton of peace of mind for us. We go up into some pretty remote high altitude mountain climates, and if something went wrong, we need a way to reach people in a place that is super remote. I will never go on a remote backcountry trek without a PLB again.
peace of mind
my favorite review [admitting I am quoting someone else] went something like this: 'heavy as a brick until you need it, light as a feather when that time comes'. happy to have this, did a lot of research, this one [when I was looking] was the best out there

Something I now always carry into the wilderness, doesn't take up much space or weight. I have never used it and hope to never have to. It also provides those at home relief, especially if hiking solo.
