SARSAT BEACON 
ACCIDENTAL ACTIVATION 
PREVENTION INITIATIVE 

Help SARSAT prevent 406 MHz ELT false alerts 
	 	 	
	
	

 

 

 

 

	

A false alert is a non‐distress activation of a 406 MHz emergency beacon (ELT, PLB, or 
EPIRB). It can be caused by accidental activation during testing, mishandling, improper 
installation, or unfamiliarity with beacon operation. 9,978 False Alerts were generated 
by ELTs in the US in 2018. 

	

	

	

	

	 	

	

Search and Rescue (SAR) personnel begin responding immediately to every activation 
of a 406 MHz SARSAT beacon. That response will only stop when it has been proven 
that the activation was a false alert. Every false alert has the potential to put rescuers in 
harm's way and waste valuable resources. 

	

		

	 	

	

	

	

	

Always ensure you are conducting self‐tests and annual tests according to the 
manufacturer's instructions for your ELT. Each year the majority of 406 MHz ELT false 
alerts occur during testing and maintenance. 
Register your ELT at www.beaconregistration.noaa.gov 
The simplest and quickest way for SAR forces to confirm 
a false alert and confirm that you are not in distress is to talk 
via phone to the person who accidentally set off the ELT. 
They do this using the information provided by the beacon 
owner in the NOAA SARSAT Beacon Registration Database system. 
Please register today and keep your contact information up‐to‐date once you register. 
If you realize you have accidentally activated your beacon, call the US Air Force 
Rescue Coordination Center at 1‐800‐851‐3051 or your nearest FAA Air Traffic facility 
with your beacon's hex ID ready to cancel the false alert. This helps protect Search and 
Rescue personnel who would otherwise be out looking for you during an actual 
emergency.
