It's sold as a single unit. A set isn't necessary. In the US, the unit requires free registration every two years through the NOAA, and in other countries,it's best to also register through whatever their emergency service provider is in order to avoid delays. The satellite link is established using 406 MHz. This gives your approximate location for ground and air rescue units, who then close in on your exact coordinates using 121.5 MHz. That's it, that's all you need, no other frequencies. If you need rescue quickly, regardless of where you are on the face of the earth, this is what you want. Virtually nothing is as reliable for putting a helicopter over your head faster. Hope that answered your questions.
