There seems to be a slow change in the current emergency frequency to 406 Mhz from 121.5 Mhz. Now this may eventually pose a problem for all us emergency owners. Anyone heard anything from Breitling on how they plan to tackle this predicament?
I was told from a ex-Breitling employee, Robert Graziano (I dunno if anyone here knows him), that Breitling will be recalling all their watches and changing the distress frequency. Can anyone verify this and can does anyone have any idea when they plan to do so? I kind of figured they wouldn't do this till everything was set in stone regarding the frequency change. As of now, according to Transport Canada, they are going to keep both 406 Mhz and 121.5 Mhz. But I can bet that will eventually change.
So for now everything's still kosher but who knows for how long?
*By the way heres the amendment from TC regarding the new emergency frequency
